Voiding Improvement Program (VIP) Your Visit

LIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke ThisLIke This

Here at Boston Children's, the Voiding Improvement Program uses non-invasive methods, including biofeedback, to help children and their families overcome a wide variety of urinary issues, including difficulty with toilet issues, daytime and bedwetting (Nocturnal Enuresis), and recurrent urinary tract infections. 

Our VIP team will first evaluate your child to make sure that a more serious underlying medical or surgical issue is not present. We will then take a comprehensive and holistic approach to treating your child's elimination issues—with a customized treatment plan tailored to the patient's individual needs. 

And at every step of the way, our experienced team of pediatric urologists, nurse practitioners and staff will guide your child, and you, through this important process with skill, compassion and empathy.

The tools that we offer for comprehensive evaluation and treatment include:

  • a questionnaire specifically designed to identify urinary issues

  • listening carefully to your and your child’s concerns

  • complete physical examination
