World leader in pediatric urology 

The Division of Urology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is consistently ranked as one of the top 3 in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.  

Each year we treat almost 20,000 children and perform more than 2,000 surgeries. We treat patients in our communities, from across the nation and from around the world. Our commitment to children and their families is long-standing.

Established in 1970 as the first program dedicated to the urologic needs of children, our Division has a history of innovation, commitment to optimal care, and dedication to the training of future generations of pediatric urologists from the United States and abroad.

Why choose us?

Expertise

Our physicians offer the full complement of surgical approaches including laparoscopic, robotic and open surgical procedures.

Integrated care

CHOP Urology is different from many other pediatric urology practices in that we offer the full complement of services to help your child and your family.
