Single-visit surgery program for urology launches at West Campus

Patients with simple urological surgery needs can now be seen in clinic by pediatric urologists and have surgery on the same day at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus.

The single-visit surgery program for urology combines the pre-operative clinic evaluation and the surgical procedure into one hospital visit. This new approach is ideal for community physicians with pediatric patients needing minor surgical interventions by a pediatric urologist.

The single-visit surgery program provides a convenient option for busy patient families and consists of a clinic appointment in the morning, and, when indicated and necessary, an outpatient surgical procedure that same day.

Patients who qualify for the program are children without a complicated medical history who have the following conditions:

  • Circumcisions for patients between ages 6 to 12 months
  • Inguinal hernias

To make an appointment, please call 832-227-7878.
