The Institute for Pediatric Urology opened in 2007 and specializes in the evaluation and treatment of urologic issues ranging from spinal cord abnormalities to acquired voiding issues. The Institute's integrated team of specialists offers comprehensive services for children by providing state-of-the-art techniques for correcting or minimizing urologic disorders. Physicians working in the Institute have developed minimally invasive techniques including laparoscopic and robotic surgery, genital reconstruction, and treatment of vesicoureteral reflux.
The facility for the Institute is built to provide a compassionate setting for all children with urologic problems. The space consists of treatment rooms encompassing pediatric video urodynamics and biofeedback, allowing for patient privacy and treatment of children in a nurturing environment. The facility's waiting room includes an aquarium, and a play area. In addition to clinical care, the facility serves as a space for the continuation of groundbreaking clinical and basic science research in pediatric urology. The Institute is located on the ninth floor of the F building within NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell Medicine.
In addition to our central location in Manhattan, Weill Cornell's Pediatric Urologists also see patients in Queens and Westchester.
What Our Patients Are Saying
Fantastic knowledgeable doctors. My son has been going there since birth and we don’t have any complaints. Reception and all staff are top notch!
Great doctor! Glad we saw him for a second opinion, explained everything in scientific terms, unlike the first doctor we saw and confirmed my suspicion about the need to have an invasive procedure recommended by the first doctor. Very sharp, personable and professional, a great example of what an open minded doctor should be like!
Dr. Akhavan and the rest of his office staff are truly exceptional. When our son had his kidney issues at birth, we were obviously concerned. Dr. Akhavan not only set us at ease, but also instilled confidence in us that all would be well. He took the time to thoroughly explain our son's condition and how he was going to treat it, which only gave us further comfort. We would recommend anyone who has a need for a pediatric urologist to contact Dr. Akhavan.
