Pediatric Robotic Urology
Our pediatric urology team is led by Dr. Mohan Gundeti, an internationally renowned, accomplished and innovative pediatric urologist and one of the top doctors in his specialty according to the peer-reviewed Best Doctors Inc. Dr. Gundeti has a decade of experience in the field of pediatric urology, and eight years of experience with pediatric robotic surgery. He strives to advance patient care, not only in Chicago, but all over the world. To this end, Dr. Gundeti is highly active both as a proponent of Continuing Medical Education, teaching many classes himself, and as a researcher, having authored a wealth of texts.
The pediatric urology program is dedicated to actualizing the future of pediatric medicine while maintaining the highest levels of compassionate patient care. Recent data from the Patient Health Statistics (PHS), shows that the program is the sixth largest in the nation by patient volume in pediatric robotic urological surgery. With this large volume, comes a wealth of experience and refined surgical technique. One common surgery is pyeloplasty surgery to relieve a blocking of urine in the kidney. Another common surgery is the reimplantation of ureter to treat kidney reflux disease, correcting the flow of urine. In 2008, our own Dr. Gundeti performed the world's first successful complete intracorporeal bladder reconstructive surgery. The program remains the only center for complex pediatric bladder reconstruction.
