Division of Pediatric Urology
The Division of Pediatric Urology in the Department of Urology at NYU Long Island School of Medicine is led by Jordan S. Gitlin, MD, director of pediatric surgery. Our mission is to improve the health of the children we serve with a commitment to excellence in urologic care. Our goal is to offer accessible, high-quality care and services that set community standards and exceed patients’ expectations.
All pediatric urologic conditions are treated at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. Common conditions such as undescended testicles and hernias, as well as complex urologic problems such as bladder exstrophy, hypospadias, urinary tract obstructions, and abnormalities of genital development, are treated by physicians with specialized surgical training in the care of these conditions in children.
We provide care for pediatric patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the Emergency Department at NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island. Our doctors also provide treatment in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), pediatric intensive care unit (PICU), and a pediatric floor dedicated to children needing urgent surgical care.
Medical students have the opportunity to explore pediatric urology during their elective rotations as part of NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s MD curriculum.
