How Boston Children’s Hospital treats UPJ obstructions
One benefit to being at Boston Children’s is the presence of our excellent Advanced Fetal Care Center. If your baby is diagnosed before birth with a UPJ obstruction, our multidisciplinary team will follow his condition closely from gestation through birth and beyond.
If your child’s doctor determines that your child needs surgery, you’ll meet with your child’s doctor and work together to design a treatment plan that fits your child and his condition. Boston Children's is home to the largest pediatric Urology Department in the world; we perform more than 3,100 surgical procedures each year and care for almost 18,000 children from throughout the country and all over the world.
Boston Children's pioneered the use of robotic surgery for complex procedures through small incisions, reducing pain, recovery time, and hospital stays. Today we perform more pediatric robotic surgeries than any other hospital in the world, and train physicians from around the country and the world.
