About the DOVE Center

The DOVE (Dysfunctional Outpatient Voiding Education) Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is among the largest, most comprehensive clinics in the U.S. devoted to pediatric bladder and urinary tract dysfunction.

Our DOVE team includes urologists, nurse practitioners, nurses and psychologists. Our program treats children with daytime or nighttime wetting, urinary urgency, frequency and/or constipation. Additionally, we work with children who have recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs).

There are many reasons why children have wetting accidents. Sorting out why your child wets, and developing a plan to make the wetting stop, is the goal of the DOVE team.

The first appointment

A DOVE physician or nurse practitioner will take a thorough history of your child’s symptoms and other medical conditions. In addition, we will want to know how often your child goes to the bathroom, how often he has accidents, and whether he has a history of urinary tract infections. It is helpful to bring a record of your child’s recent bathroom habits, using this voiding diary, to the first appointment.

We will also conduct a physical examination of the abdomen, spine and genitals. Contact us at 215-590-2754 to make an appointment at any of our locations.
