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
"I can't say enough great things about Dr. Akhavan. He demonstrated patience and kindness throughout our time together. He answered all questions and concerns immediately which gave me clarity during our process. Best urologist."
"Amazing Doctor Dr. Wiygul was great. He is extremely friendly and doesn't intimidate the kids which is what you want. He performed a hernia repair on our son and everything from start to finish was exactly as he explained to us. From the first visit, to the surgery and the follow up, we have nothing but good things to say. You can ask questions and he does not rush you. His secretary Sherri is also fantastic!!! Extremely helpful and friendly."
"Dr. Akhavan is the absolute best. My son was born with a serious kidney problem and had many surgeries over the years. After some years he had a set back and after meeting Dr. Akhavan we found out his kidney was much worse then we had known. After a 7 hour surgery, the doctor was able to take care of it and my son was able to start college on time and is doing well thanks to Dr. Akhavan."
