Resources

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 resources that may be helpful for families whose children are being treated in our center. It is important that our patients still feel and act like kids and that their families get the support they need to focus on what is most important: patient recovery. We are by your side every step of the way with detailed information, guides and more.
