The Center for Special Health Care Needs

Complex Urology Care

The Center for Special Health Care Needs provides a centralized location for those who were born with complex urologic conditions and may have undergone surgery or another intensive treatment during childhood.

Our goal is to allow you to continue your treatment in a warm and friendly environment with a team of medical experts who understand your unique medical history and the concerns that are relevant to your age. 

Our program cares for the whole person, provides guidance on ways to maintain a healthy and independent lifestyle and manages referrals to specialists for physical therapy, occupational therapy, surgery and other services as necessary. We consider each person’s quality of life, personal goals, social and living situation, and access to support from friends and family.

Our program is for those with complex urologic conditions that may have lifelong effects. These include but are not limited to:

  • Bladder exstrophy
  • Epispadias
  • Prune belly syndrome
  • Hypospadias
  • Spina bifida
  • Posterior urethral valves

Your visit can be customized to meet your needs. You and your family can consult our specialists even if you already have a primary care physician. Or you can work with our team over a longer time period. 

We will work together to determine what is right for you, and this could include:

  • Identifying personal goals and steps toward achieving them.
  • Managed by specialists who are familiar with complex urologic conditions.
  • Treating the cold, flu and other common illnesses.
  • Making sure you receive screenings and preventative care to keep you from developing additional lifelong conditions.
