Urinary and Genital Disorders (Children)
What questions should I ask?
My 14 month old daughter has had 3 UTI`s since December 2007. She had a VCUG done in June 2008- results Grade II in right tubule. She is now on a low dose antibiotic to prevent any recurrent UTI`s. I live in South Texas and there are no pedi OB-GYN`s. I was referred to a pedi surgeon from Driscoll for next month. If this physician specializes in urology, what questions need to be asked? Thank you for your time.
I would suggest travelling to Houston to Texas Children's Hospital and see either Dr. David Roth or Dr. Eric Jones. Both are experts in the treatment of reflux. In the meantime, I refer you to the AUA Practice Guidelines, which have an exhaustive list of questions at the end. Please see the link below.
