The Urological Health Center does specialize in treatment for children. However, it is mandatory that the guardian of that child be present at every appointment. The following are some of the problems that children have dealing with urology.
Circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove the foreskin from the head of the penis. Some parents choose to have their sons circumcised as a baby. Ususally this is done by an obstetrician(a doctor who delivers babies), a pediatrician (a doctor who cares for children)or a neonatologist(a doctor who cares for newborns). However, when the boy is older circumcision is usually done by a urologist.
