Pediatric urology expert witnesses are physicians with a medical specialty in treating urological conditions in children, which includes issues with the urinary tract and genitourinary system. While there are some differences in the treatment of urology between adults and children, many pediatric urology expert witnesses will have a background in urology as a general practice. Like any other medical area, however, certain issues may arise that can lead to litigation, such as injuries, health insurance bad faith, medical malpractice, unforeseen side effects to various procedures and/or medication, a patient provided with misinformation regarding his or her treatment, or other medical oversights.
Pediatric urology expert witnesses may have backgrounds in renal failure, organ replacement, stem cell research, developmental biology, transplants, reconstructive surgery, and kidney surgery. The utilization of medical equipment, including access to laboratory testing and medical imaging, is very important in treating issues with the reproductive system or problems with urination. Any medical issue concerning the kidney, bladder, urethra, male or female genital tracts, tubular diseases, pathophysiology, hypertension, and growth disorders, as well as infections or anomalies of the urologic areas, are each treated by this field.
Pediatric urology expert witnesses are licensed and/or certified and they are usually members of the American Board of Urology, among other relevant skills and professions. It is important to select the right pediatric urology expert witness based on the particular needs of your specific case.
