Background

Dr. Kolon is an attending pediatric urologist in Children's Hospital of Philadelphia's Division of Urology. He holds the Howard M. Snyder III Endowed Chair in Pediatric Urology and serves as Director of CHOP's Differences of Sex Development Program.

Dr. Kolon is an expert in the care of children with genital disorders and renal/bladder/prostate cancers. He has published extensively in the area of long-term follow-up of patients with undescended testis and varicocele, with specific emphasis on fertility preservation and rehabilitation. Dr. Kolon is world-renowned in this area and has published on the likelihood of future fertility in patients with undescended testicles and varicocele, and the preservation of fertility in oncology patients.

Dr. Kolon's areas of expertise include pediatric urologic oncology, particularly in organ-sparing surgery. He also works extensively in concert with colleagues in endocrinology, genetics, and psychology helping patients with differences of sex development (intersex, genital atypia), so that reconstruction, if needed, will optimize genitourinary function.
