RESEARCH REGISTRY - HOW YOU CAN HELP

At SickKids Urology, we have a very good understanding of how to treat many problems in the urologic system of children. However, the reason that most of these problems occur to begin with is almost entirely unknown. We are constantly searching for even better ways to improve urology diagnosis and treatment. In order to do that, we must study and review the medical information of thousands of children just like your child in order to reach this goal, and answer the basic question ‘Why do urology conditions happen’?

 You can help our researchers make advancements in their field by participating in the Paediatric Urology Research Registry (PURR).
