At the CHOC Children’s Urology Center, we are committed to supporting our patients and their families throughout treatment. Because we know that urology diagnoses often come with many questions, we are proud to offer a variety of online resources that may be particularly helpful for families whose children are being treated in our center.
Surgery information and postoperative instructions
Whether a child will be receiving an out-patient procedure or a in-patient surgery requiring an extended stay in our hospital, we know that families have a lot of questions about what to expect and how to prepare for their child’s return home. Learn more about urology surgeries and procedures at CHOC Children’s.
Learn more about the importance of water
Not drinking enough water can be a factor in variety of diagnoses. Learn how much water your child should drink each day.
Bladder Exstrophy Support Group
The Association for the Bladder Exstrophy Community (ABC), established in June 1991, is an international support group network comprising individuals with bladder exstrophy, local parent-exstrophy support groups and health care providers who work with patients and families living with bladder exstrophy.
