MUSC background

Pediatric Urology

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) Children’s Hospital has been serving the children of South Carolina and the surrounding areas since its opening in 1987. Pediatric Urology, as a subspecialty of the MUSC Department of Urology, provides child-centered care to pediatric patients with urologic issues. These issues involve both medical and surgical management of genito-urinary issues for males and females. To treat these urological conditions, MUSC’s pediatric urologists offer a comprehensive selection of services from pre-natal consultations, inpatient and outpatient consultation services, and both inpatient and outpatient surgical procedures.
