Beaumont's pediatric urologists have advanced
fellowship training that prepares them to work exclusively with infants,
children and adolescents. Our department director, Dr. Evan Kass, leads
the team. Dr. Kass has consistently been named on the “Best Doctor in
Detroit” and “Best Doctor in America” lists.
Each year, Dr. Kass and his colleagues perform approximately 1,200 surgeries at the family-centered, child-friendly Ghesquiere Family Center for Children’s Surgery.
A less invasive approach
Whenever possible, we choose minimally invasive surgical procedures
for the children we treat. These procedures help prevent unnecessary
tissue disruption and help speed healing. The laparoscopic approach also
allows for less complications compared to traditional, open surgery.
Urologic conditions treated
Our skilled pediatric urologists diagnose and treat urologic conditions, such as:
- hernia and hydroceles
- hypospadias and chordee
- posterior urethral valves (PUV)
- undescended testicle
- vesicoureteral reflux (VUR)
- voiding problems
Less common conditions include:
- bladder exstrophy
- prune belly (Eagle-Barret Syndrome)
