Internationally Recognized Pediatric Urologist Joins CHOC

A world-renowned specialist is bringing leading-edge pediatric urology services to Orange County. Antoine Khoury, M.D., who is director and chief of pediatric urology for CHOC Children’s and UC Irvine, respectively, is building CHOC into an academic center of excellence that will eventually become a tertiary referral center for Southern California. He is also working with UCI scientists in tissue bioengineering research.

Dr. Khoury co-edited The Kelalis-King-Belman Textbook of Clinical Pediatric Urology (2007), the definitive textbook about pediatric urology. Prior to coming to CHOC and UCI, he was professor of urology and division head of pediatric urology at the University of Toronto, Hospital for Sick Children, in Ontario.

His goal is to develop a similar program at CHOC for:

  • Medical and surgical management of complex pediatric urology anomalies
  • Reconstructive challenges for incontinence
  • Genital anomalies
  • Renal transplantation
  • Oncology

Dr. Khoury is experienced in all aspects of pediatric urology, from transplantation to the most complicated intersex reconstructive procedures. He is currently forming several multidisciplinary teams at CHOC to provide comprehensive care for children with the following genitourinary problems:

  • Adolescents and adults with pediatric urological issues
  • Disorders of sexual differentiation
  • Bladder exstrophy care
  • Perinatal urology
  • Minimally invasive surgery
  • Pediatric lower urinary Tract (P-LUT) dysfunction and neurourology

CHOC to become Major Teaching Center
As part of developing CHOC into an academic center, Dr. Khoury anticipates developing two pediatric urology fellowships. He has already begun working with pediatric urology residents from UCI.
