Pediatric Urological Surgery Unit

The Pediatric Urological Surgery Unit belongs to the Pediatric Surgery Service of Parc Taulí and is currently made up of doctors Paula Jiménez, Clara Esteva and Javier Güizzo. We highlight the use of minimally invasive surgery (to treat both vesicoureteral reflux and other genitourinary pathologies or malformations), as well as the use of endourology (to avoid open surgical procedures, such as in the treatment of abnormalities of the ureterovesical junction).

Most common pathologies:

  • Congenital and acquired abnormalities of the ureter
  • Anomalies of sexual differentiation
  • Abnormalities of the pyeloureteral junction
  • Urethral abnormalities (posterior urethral valves, prostatic utricle, stenosis)
  • Cryptorchidism
  • Diverticles
  • Epispadies
  • Acute scrotum (testicular torsion, testicular hydatid torsion, orchiepididymitis)
  • Phimosis, balanoprepucial adhesions and short penile brake
  • Minor lip hypertrophy
  • Hypospadias
  • Renal malformations
  • Megaureter
  • Vesicoureteal reflux
  • Sinequias of smaller lips
  • Ureterocele
  • varicocele
