The team is available for consultation on patients with atypical genitalia and other hormonal or genetic issues impacting sexual development. These can include congenital adrenal hyperplasia, androgen insensitivity, Klinefelter's syndrome, Turner's syndrome, hypospadias, and other variations that may impact sexual development.

Spina Bifida Program

Our Spina Bifida Program involves an array of pediatric specialists. A multidisciplinary team leads the urological care of patients with spina bifida as well as other neurogenic bladder problems, coordinating care with other pediatric specialists. The team is committed to providing these patients with the latest options available in medicine, minimally invasive techniques and surgical reconstruction. Our goal is to treat patients to avoid augmentation surgery, if at all possible. We also have a Transitional Care Program to maintain continuity of care as these patients age from adolescents to adults.
