Megaureter in Children

  • Overview

    Megaureter is simply the medical term for a "large" or "big" ureter.

    • The ureter is a tube-like structure that serves as the passageway for the flow of urine from the kidney to the bladder.
    • There are two ureters, one for each kidney.
    • Together, the ureter and the kidney collecting system are referred to as the upper urinary tract.

    The Department of Pediatric Urology at Boston Children's Hospital is recognized internationally and is staffed by experienced physicians, who are teachers, leaders and innovators, dedicated to state of the art urologic care, surgical expertise and research in all aspects of pediatric urology.
