One of the most common conditions managed by pediatric urologists is vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). The standard approach to treating it has been questioned by CHOC urologists.
CHOC’s pediatric urology team, in a partnership with UCI Health, has published the largest study of its kind on an emergency condition that afflicts young males, adding to the emerging body of data on how the COVID-19 pandemic has caused patients to delay seeking emergency treatment.
The merging of clinical experience, surgical expertise and evidence-based practices is critical for obtaining the best outcomes for patients and their families. Guided by these criteria, CHOC established the Western Pediatric Urology Consortium (WPUC) to develop impactful and innovative research to benefit pediatric urology patients in the years ahead.
CHOC’s virtual pediatric lecture series continues with "Bladder function and dysfunction: Woes for primary care clinicians."
The Urology Center at CHOC is collaborating with Joshua Mauney, PhD and Jerry D. Choate Presidential Chair in Urology Tissue Engineering in UC Irvine.
