Our Pediatric Surgery and Urology Services:

The Department for Pediatric Urology at American Hospital Dubai specializes in the structure, function and development of children’s kidneys and urinary tracts. Our experts and staff are highly trained and they offer calming, individualized, and pediatric oriented care to children.
Our services are driven by world-class technology to offer a more accurate diagnosis, precise treatment options, and provide a compassionate and relaxed setting for children. For conditions requiring surgical intervention or complex reconstructive surgery, our surgeons employ minimally invasive surgical techniques such as:

  • Endourology: uses natural orifices of the urinary tract to perform minimally traumatic procedures such as biopsies and stone extractions.
  • Laparoscopic surgery: It involves a telescope with a video camera to make tiny incisions on the abdomen for surgical instruments to pass through and reach the surgical area.
  • Thoracoscopic surgery: This type of surgery is similar to laparoscopy except that it is performed on the chest.
  • Endosurgery and scar-less surgery: This surgery involves an endoscope that is inserted through the umbilicus (which is a naturally existing scar) to approach the surgical area. Special instruments are deployed through an endoscope to perform the surgery. Patients usually have no apparent abdominal scarring.
  • Robotic surgery: It involves a robot arm that assists the surgeon in performing the surgery with great precision.

All of the aforementioned minimally invasive procedures cause minimal tissue damage, and offer quick recovery times.
