Adult Congenital Urologic Care
A congenital anomaly is an anatomic variation present at birth that can cause health problems or affect how the body works.
Congenital anomalies often affect the reproductive and urinary systems, which include the internal and external reproductive (sex) organs and the urinary bladder, urethra, ureter and kidney.
Congenital urologic conditions require long-term, expert urologic care from childhood into adulthood. It is often difficult to find adult providers with true expertise in the management of these conditions.
