GENTLE DIAGNOSTICS FOR THE LITTLE ONES

The best possible medical and nursing care for your child is important to us. In pediatric urology, we have specialised in the treatment of pediatric urologic diseases that occur in children from birth to adulthood. 

The urologo cdmx Clinic for Urology and Pediatric Urology has a special children’s clinic in which we look after boys and girls with urological problems on referral from urologists and paediatricians. We diagnose and treat malformations and diseases of the kidneys, ureters, urinary bladder and genital organs in newborns and children.

Urology for little ones

“I myself am the father of two children and I know the fears when one of my children is ill. You can trust us, we know what we’re doing. We are a highly specialized and sensitive team of doctors and nurses.”

DR. MED. WALTER BATZILL, HEAD OF THE PEDIATRIC UROLOGY AND UROGYNECOLOGY SECTION

Recognition and treatment of childhood urological diseases:

We pay special attention to bedwetting at night and urinary incontinence in children. A problem that often puts a lot of strain on the family. In our pediatric urology department, the focus is on the child. Fears are quickly taken away through a trusting cooperation with the child and the parents.

How can you make use of the treatment in the children’s clinic? We have put together the most important steps for you:

In addition, one of our central tasks is to provide parents with comprehensive advice and to inform them about the need and timing of diagnostic work-up and therapeutic measures. Because one thing is certain, no child will piss on purpose. 

First of all, contact your pediatrician, who will refer you to our urological outpatient department for complex diseases that cannot be treated in the practice.

The next step is to arrange an appointment with us to introduce your child by phone. We have set up a special children’s clinic in our urological outpatient clinic for this purpose. Please bring the transfer with you.

Now you know the appointment and the next step is to visit us at the Maria-Hilf hospital. Please make sure you bring the transfer with you to this appointment. Please ask in the reception of our foyer for directions to the urological ambulance. Once there, report to the urological ambulance reception so that we know that you are there.  

This is followed by an initial consultation with our specialist doctor and we carry out initial examinations, such as the ultrasound examination. The urine sample also gives us the first clues.

If no inpatient admission is necessary, a letter will follow to your referring specialist with our examination results and treatment recommendations. If your doctor deems it necessary to have a follow-up examination carried out in our house after the therapy has been completed, then make another appointment in the urological outpatient department.

When surgery is necessary

If the examination shows that an outpatient operation or an inpatient admission is necessary, there are two options.

In less critical cases, you will receive an appointment for the planned procedure in our urological outpatient department. After an outpatient procedure, you will usually come to the urological outpatient department the following day for follow-up treatment or a follow-up examination. As you can see, we want to make your journey as easy as possible.

During planned inpatient operations, you and your child will stay with us. The preparations for the operation and the admission are carried out on an outpatient basis a few days before the operation. The secretaries of the urological ambulance will give you all the information you need. 

Direct hospitalization may be necessary for children with acute, more serious illnesses. The decision to do so will be made in consultation with you as parents in the urological outpatient department. We carry out the most important diagnostic tests directly in the urological outpatient department. In the background we reserve a ward bed and, if you wish, a bed for you so that you don’t have to leave your child alone. For children under the age of seven, the health insurance companies cover the costs. 

We will inform your pediatrician and coordinate it again. When you arrive at the ward, report to our nursing staff. You will receive a room and important information for your inpatient stay. In the background, we are already planning the surgical procedure for your child. We will contact you on the ward to provide information on anesthesia. Please ask us any questions that are important to you. We take time for you. 

Then it goes to the operating room and the operation can begin. During the wake-up phase, we are also at your child’s side in the recovery room.

Then the inpatient follow-up treatment begins in our house. After you are discharged from the hospital, we will inform your pediatrician again about the individual examination and treatment results. We are always in direct dialogue with your pediatrician. So we can all work together to ensure that your child gets well again as quickly as possible. 

Would you like to stay with your child during the inpatient stay?

If your child needs inpatient treatment, you can of course stay with your child. That calms your child down. For us, the so-called “rooming-in” is part of our concept anyway.
