A pediatric urologist, after graduating from college and medical school, trains in surgery for at least one year, urology for three years, and finally pursues specialty training in pediatric urology for one or two additional years. This extensive and rigorous training enables the pediatric urologist to be able to manage the diagnostic evaluation, clinical care, and demanding surgical reconstruction of a wide array of defects affecting the urinary tracts and genital systems of infants, children and adolescents. These disorders are sometimes congenital, mandating immediate care for the newborn or even the fetus in certain circumstances. The same defects may also require ongoing care throughout infancy and childhood. Other conditions of acquired nature may come to the attention of the pediatric urologist at later stages in childhood.
