Pediatric Voiding Dysfunction
Pediatric voiding dysfunction describes a broad range of symptoms and diagnoses which can be seen in isolation or in conjunction with other urologic diagnoses. Most treatment interventions for pediatric voiding dysfunction are non-surgical and often require long-term behavioral modifications that can require repeated reinforcement by the health care team. As the majority of pediatric patients with voiding dysfunction have chronic, non-emergent, non-surgical diagnoses, the most appropriate and high-quality care of these patients may be better provided through co-management by the primary care physician and the pediatric urologist through a well-defined and highly-coordinated diagnostic and therapeutic approach.
For questions about participating in Co-Management, or to schedule an orientation for Co-Management at your pediatric practice, email Michele Krivickas.
