Prenatal Urology Counseling

Many congenital abnormalities which require surgical correction are now routinely diagnosed before birth, using advanced imaging (ultrasound, MRI) techniques. Surgeons have tried to correct some of these problems prenatally, operating on the child while still in the womb. These techniques remain extremely risky to both mother and child and it is difficult to show clear benefit with most of these procedure. The techniques remain experimental and are performed at limited centers throughout the world.

At a big majority treatment always can wait until the child is born. Termination of pregnancy happens at extremely low percentages. Though prenatal counseling has major advantages and gives the best possible clinical outcomes, limits stress on both parent and baby.
