Our Richmond urology specialists are leading global advances in pediatric urology 

Led by C.D. Anthony Herndon, MD, we are advancing local and international efforts to expand and improve access to specialty urologic care throughout Virginia and beyond. Our goal is to become a top 20 urology program in the United States and a referral center of excellence in the Mid-Atlantic.

In 2017, the Children’s Hospital Foundation announced a $2.9 million grant to support urology. The funds are being used to recruit additional surgeons, increase clinical research and expand clinical programs.

We use behavioral therapy and biofeedback – using safe, electrical sensors to help control bodily functions – to treat patients with voiding dysfunction. The condition, marked by the inability control the bladder, impacts up to 10 percent of children, and includes patients with urinary incontinence, urinary tract infections and bedwetting.

CHoR is also the site of “the Society for Fetal Urology National Registry for children with a prenatal urinary tract dilation,” a common condition that blocks flow of urine from the kidneys. While most kids do well in treatment, a significant number are at increased risk of urologic disease, and the registry is assisting in research to develop effective treatment protocols that will better define the role of antibiotics and need for invasive postnatal imaging.
