Urology is a surgical specialty concerned with disorders or abnormalities of the kidney, renal pelvis, ureter, bladder and urethra in both males and females. Disorders of the penis and testicles in males and disorders of the vagina in females are also part of the spectrum of conditions treated by a urologist. Urogenital or genitourinary (GU) are words that refer to the urinary and genital organs.
Because the genitourinary system is so complex, involving many systems in the body, a child with a genitourinary disorder may require a number of specialists to participate in his or her care.
