Chennai Kidney Care

PEDIATRIC UROLOGY

Chennai Kidney Care provides expert treatment for a wide range of developmental issues in infants and children affecting their kidneys, bladder, urethra or genital tract. Most of the conditions diagnosed in children are congenital, meaning they are present at birth. Surgery is the primary treatment for most of these urological issues. Specifically, robotic laparoscopic surgery has become the standard of care. Surgeons rely on this minimally invasive approach because it’s generally less painful, requires a shorter hospital stay, and has a shorter recovery time than traditional open surgery.
