Why Choose Le Bonheur Children’s?

  • Our urology program in Memphis, Tennessee is recognized nationally by U.S. News & World Report as a top pediatric urology program.
  • Our facilities include complete urodynamics capability, which is a test to see how the bladder is working, and advanced diagnostic and imaging equipment. This allows us to get the best information about your child’s condition and customize treatment.
  • Our team of experts includes board-certified pediatric urologists, nurse practitioners and dedicated urodynamics and nursing staff. We also have the region's only ACGME accredited pediatric urology fellowship program for training future pediatric urologists.
  • We offer the only comprehensive children's continence center focused on bed-wetting, urinary incontinence and recurring urinary tract infections in the Memphis area.
  • We have a robotic surgery program and our urologists continue to provide the most current surgical care in the country including complex reconstructive procedures, minimally invasive laparoscopic procedures and endoscopic urinary stone management.
  • Our pelvic floor rehabilitation program helps children strengthen and coordinate muscles that control the bladder.
  • Our team provides clean intermittent catherization education support for families. Intermittent catheterization uses a tube to empty the bladder as needed.
  • Le Bonheur has an Outpatient Pediatric Treatment for Intersex States (OPTIonS) Clinic, a multi-disciplinary clinic that involves pediatric endocrinology, urology, psychology, psychiatry and genetic counseling. The program provides coordinated care for patients and families affected by disorders of sexual differentiation (DSD). The clinic participates in the Disorders of Sexual Differentiation Translation Research Network (DSD-TRN) - working to improve the knowledge and care for patients with DSD.
