To treat children and watch them recover can be one of the most rewarding experiences in medicine. Some urologists are involved in the treatment of children with tight foreskins, congenital hernias, undescended testicles and a variety of other straightforward conditions.

Tight foreskin in children

A few urologists undergo additional training to become highly-specialised paediatric urologists. This specialist paediatric urology training qualifies them to deal with more complex, childhood urological conditions, includingcongenital hypospadias;

  • bladder reconstruction;
  • sex differentiation disorders;
  • urinary reflux up to the kidneys; and
  • genitourinary cancers in childhood.

The British Association of Paediatric Urologists (BAPU) has a membership separate from BAUS (although some paediatric urologists are also members of BAUS), and is devoted entirely to urology in infants, children & the newborn. It even includes foetal urology (the detection & treatment of urinary abnormalities in the womb during pregnancy). Click the logo (left) to visit the BAPU website.
