Urology Research

The Pediatric Urology Department at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan has a clinical research program that is actively recruiting participants. Research interests are directly related to the goal of improving the clinical care of  patients. 

Current and recent research includes; children with bedwetting, link between bedwetting and obstructive sleep apnea, daytime incontinence, kidney stones, disorders of sex development, link between constipation and urinary incontinence and other urological problems. Additionally, several studies focus on investigating how parents are affected by their child’s urological condition. The department is also part of a collaborative team of six hospitals across the country that focuses on studies of children with disorders of sex development. 

The research team has been very successful in publishing articles in high-quality medical journals, including the Journal of Urology, Journal of Pediatric Urology, and Journal of Pediatric Psychology. Additionally, research findings have been presented at several national and international pediatric and urological conferences throughout the year. 

As clinical researchers, interactions with patients drive research questions. The patients’ concerns and frustrations regarding their medical conditions are what drive research efforts. Therefore, studies are designed to directly impact the patient care practices within the department.
