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.
"Dr. Pappas was a pleasure! He performed a surgery on my son, diagnosed the problem(post urethral valves) and corrected it. After the surgery, my son began to feel better day by day. We felt at ease with Dr. Pappas every step of the way. He was patient, explained things in detail and gave us the time we deserved. He followed up with us and will continue to follow my sons progress over the course of a few months. We were in the best of hands !! Highly recommend!!"
"Wonderful doctor - very caring, very clear (explains everything clearly) and communicative. We feel very lucky to have our son in his care. We have also had a great experience with the virtual appointments that initiated during COVID: on-time, smooth technology, not rushed (far easier than trekking to the office, waiting, etc). We will be happy to see them continue with virtual visits, where appropriate, in the future."
