  2. Description • A specially trained surgeon that deals with urological diseases and issues of children from the ages 0-14. In some cases like with e.g. exstrophy, renal transplant, and continent procedures, the age can increase up to 16+. Pediatrics do very well working with kids, and work in conditions that satisfy child attention spans. These specific environments are needed to allow the children to feel more comfortable when being examined.
