I generally see two types of patients. One has congenital anomalies of their internal system — mainly their kidneys and their bladders — and these are patients that we treat and try to take care of to prevent any future kidney damages. The other type is mainly from the external genitalia — maldevelopment of the testicles or of the penis itself.
The majority of our conditions that we see, there are very good options that are out there. They can go from very conservative medical treatments to even large surgeries in which we can alter the course of their condition and help improve quality of life.
One of the most enjoyable parts that sort of guides my practice is to serve as guidance for the parents because many of these conditions require individualized treatment plans. And I think that it’s my practice philosophy to try to engage the parents in conversation, as well as the patient, and figure out what is in their best interest and what type of management plan will fit their own personal needs and interests and goals.
