A pediatric urologist and andrologist is a doctor, who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of genitourinary tract diseases and abnormalities in children.

At the present time, a pediatric urologist is one of the most sought after specialists in Moscow, as every fourth child nowadays experiences problems with their genitourinary system.

If you’ve noticed that your child is experiencing the following symptoms, we strongly recommend that you book an appointment with a pediatric urologist and andrologist:

  • Changes in urine tests;

  • Periodic increases in body temperature;

  • The child complaining of painful urination;

  • Difficult, frequent or infrequent urination.

At the visit, the pediatric urologist will examine the child, gather a history of the symptoms, and recommend the necessary tests and investigations.The urologist will then prescribe an individualized treatment program, based on the test results, as well as determining if surgery is required. The child is usually examined by the pediatric urologist in the presence of parents.
