Paediatric Urology and Digestive Surgery Outpatient Clinic

Doctor is checking a baby at Paediatric urology and digestive surgery outpatient clinic.

We treat and examine congenital deformities and functional disorders of the bladder and intestinal tract area, and trauma sequelae of patients under 16. Our largest patient group is patients with functional disorders of the bladder and intestinal tract. In addition, we treat patients requiring treatment for pectus excavatum and scars.

You need a doctor's referral to be admitted.
A clinic fee is collected from your visit.

The visit lasts 15 to 30 minutes. The visit often includes examinations performed by a urologic nurse or a urotherapist. These include, among others: uroflowmetry, measuring residual urine by ultrasound, urodynamic testing and other physiological measurements, such as height, weight and blood pressure. The examination includes the in-depth interview by a nurse and various urine measurements and diaries filled by the parents at home.

The nurse can teach the child and the parents intermittent catheterisation of the bladder and, if required, the ACE passageway designed for bowel enemas. In addition, the nurse can give other treatment instructions and urotherapy. The nurse visit, examination and teaching can last from one hour to 6 hours.

The visits can include a dietitian, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, urotherapist, family therapist and a social worker, if required. Imaging studies are performed in both the X-ray and isotope wards, while blood sampling is performed in a laboratory. We can also take blood samples during examination. Infants' urine samples are taken before examination.
