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.

Treatment for prolonged and serious forms of wetting can include:

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
