Sometimes a child can develop problems with his or her kidneys, genitals, or bladder. For these issues, it’s necessary for the parent to take the child to see a urologist. Boys can experience issues like undescended testes, hypospadias, or problems with the foreskin. Girls might need to see a urologist for issues like recurring urinary tract infections or daytime wetting. Both sexes can have issues like night-time wetting or kidney abnormalities. A urologist will be able to help with any of those problems and provide the child with lasting relief.
If a child is experiencing any of the issues above, then it’s necessary to see a pediatric urologist. A pediatric urologist specializes in treating those issues in children, specifically. Because children are young and not fully developed, they have special needs, which a pediatric urologist can accommodate. These professionals are the most qualified ones to treat children for any urinary or genital conditions.
Treatments could include medication, simple surgery, helpful devices, or behavioral changes. Treatment plans could include a combination of those things. For urinary incontinence, a pediatric urologist might suggest an indwelling catheter, external collecting system, urine drainage bag, or other solutions. Absorbent products can work too.
First of all, a urologist will ask about the symptoms and provide an examination to help determine the cause of the bedwetting. The doctor might also ask for a urine sample or other tests to look for signs of infection or other issues.
Most children outgrow bedwetting, but if the doctor determines that there’s an issue and that treatment is necessary, he or she can provide a number of treatment options. One option for common bedwetting is a moisture alarm which connects to a moisture-sensitive pad on your child’s pajamas or bedding. The alarm sounds when moisture is detected, and can remind your child that it’s time to go to the bathroom.
The doctor can provide other options too, like medication that can slow the production of urine at night or reduce bladder contractions.
If you have a pediatrician or a family doctor, you can reach out to them for a referral, or you can simply contact us here at Mohamed & Associates Urology. We will introduce you and your child to Dr. Adel Mohamed MD, our resident pediatric urologist.
Prior to your appointment, we recommend that you make a list of signs or symptoms of any issues. The doctor will also be interested in any family history of urinary or genitilia conditions, so please make note of this.
