Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are one of the most common infections in pediatrics. It accounts for approximately 1.5 million outpatient visits in the United States every year. It occurs in 11% of girls and 4% of boys.
Shriners Children's world-renowned pediatric surgery program gives us the ability to help children who have a variety of conditions, including those they were born with, as well as those that develop over time or are the result of an injury.
Urinary Tract Issues
Here at Shriners Children's, we treat urinary tract issues associated with a neurologic condition such as spina bifida or cerebral palsy. This includes bladder storage and emptying, which can lead to an increase in urinary tract infections.
Shriners Children's skilled physicians use halo traction as a first step in correcting severe scoliosis, kyphosis and other spine deformities. The treatment carefully pulls a child's head and spine upward, applying a slow stretch.
