Remember that children, marriages, and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get.

Circumcision is a procedure that involves removing the tissue covering the head of a boy’s penis, called the foreskin.

Bladder Augmentation

In this procedure, a piece of the bowel, stomach or ureter (the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the bladder) is used to enlarge the bladder.


Enuresis is a condition in children over the age of 4 in which they continue to wet their bed or release urine at other inappropriate times. 

Undescended Testicles

An undescended testicle is common in baby boys born prematurely, but it usually moves into the proper position on its own within a few months.


A ureterocele is a condition where the portion of the ureter closest to the bladder becomes enlarged because the ureter opening is very tiny and obstructs urine outflow.

Urinary Stones

In industrialized countries, urinary stones — urolithiasis — are rare in children. When present, they are often associated with specific metabolic disorders or anatomic abnormalities.

Urinary Tract Infections

A urinary tract infection (UTI) is caused by bacteria that get into the bladder. UTIs are very common in children, particularly in little girls, and tend to keep coming back.
