Neurourology Program | Research and Innovation

The Neurourology Program at Boston Children's Hospital is constantly researching new and more effective ways to treat your child's condition. Our current treatment innovations include:

  • Endoscopic treatment of vesicoureteral reflux

  • Laporoscopic and robotically assisted surgical reconstruction of the lower urinary tract

  • Tissue engineered bladder reconstruction for neurogenic bladder

  • Early intervention (or bladder dysfunction) using catheterization and medications

  • Urodynamics assessment of the bladder function to guide therapy

  • Minimally invasive treatment for stones in the urinary tract, including ESWL (extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, ureteroscopy, nephroscopy), laser fragmentation of stones
