Head of Unit: Dr. Boris Chertin
The main field of activity of the Unit of Pediatric Urology in the Shaare Zedek Medical Center is the post-natal management of ante-natally diagnosed anomalies.
We are the leading center in Israel in the management of post-natal hydronephrosis, vesico-uretero-reflux and bladder anomalies.
Articles published by our staff regarding the management of the above pathologies and the proper indications for surgery, serve as guides in the clinical practice by the majority of pediatric urologists around the world.
We practically serve as the national center for the repair of genital anomalies, such as intersex conditions and severe penile abnormalities.
"Feminizing Genitoplasty", which is one of the methods for the correction of inborn abnormality of the genitalia of the female, was described by the former chairman of our department of urology, Prof. Amicur Farkas, and is used by the leading pediatric urologists in Israel and around the world.
Recently we put special emphasis on the treatment of voiding dysfunction in children, such as diurnal and nocturnal enuresis.
The out-patient clinic of Pediatric Urology is located in the Institute of Urology on the 2nd floor of the Shaare Zedek Medical Center and provides a wide range of pediatric services.
