Pediatric Urology Clinic

Hackensack Meridian Children's Health Harry P. Koo, M.D., division chief of Pediatric Urology, Richard Schlussel, M.D., director of Pediatric Urology for the Hackensack Meridian Health network, and Carlos Medina, M.D., pediatric urologist, will see patients at 360 Essex Street in Hackensack, NJ; a short walk from the Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital.

The Center for Pediatric Urology is strategically located next to the adult urology clinic and will include a separate child-friendly waiting area and six exam rooms. Diagnostic tools available for pediatric patients include ultrasound and urodynamic technology.

Last year, Joseph M. Sanzari launched a combined Pediatric Nephrology and Urology Clinic for children from birth through early adulthood (age 21) who have been diagnosed with complex kidney conditions including kidney stones. The Sanzari clinic joined the combined Pediatric Urology and Nephrology Clinic at K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital.

At both Hackensack Meridian Children's hospitals, a team of urologists and nephrologists provide care in the hospital's kidney stone clinic and offer procedures including extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy, flexible ureteroscopy and laser lithotripsy and percutaneous nephrolithotomy/nephrolithotripsy. The clinics are staffed by a multidisciplinary team that includes pediatric nephrologists, who treat conditions such as chronic kidney disease, hematuria and acute renal failure, and pediatric urologists, who treat children with bladder control issues, such as hernia, bedwetting, incontinence, kidney stones and urinary obstructions.

Pediatric nephrologists and urologists are also part of the multidisciplinary pediatric kidney transplant team at Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital.
