There are many ways you can help children and their families get the care they need.
If a child is over potty training age (usually 5 years old) and has frequent accidents, especially during the day, it is best to seek help from a doctor as soon as possible. Children can experience social embarrassment and as a result, emotional stress because of this problem. The earlier the problem can be identified and treated the better.
At Boston Children’s Hospital, our Voiding Improvement Program (VIP) team takes a comprehensive and holistic approach to treat a wide variety of urinary issues. After a thorough evaluation to diagnose any urological problems, our staff customizes a treatment plan and shares that plan with the child’s primary care doctor. When possible, we employ non-invasive methods for treatment or will refer you to the appropriate therapy option.
