Paediatric Urology

Urologia Pediàtrica a Vall d'Hebron
The Paediatric Urology Unit is a part of the Paediatric Surgery Department, and mainly deals with kidney and urinary tract abnormalities in children and adolescents. We offer minimally invasive surgery in the treatment of kidney abnormalities and urinary tracts with a focus on the use of robotic techniques for the treatment of so-called "pyeloureteral stenosis", which is a congenital ureter malformation.


Our Unit is a pioneer in the treatment of sexual differentiation disorders at the paediatric age. We are also a renowned centre for paediatric renal transplants, and lead the way in Catalonia, especially in complex kidney transplants or transplants in combination with other organs.
