Find a Urologist: With a congenital UPJ obstruction, your child is likely to need surgery. You should find an experienced Pediatric Urologist who can talk through surgical options. Some of the nearby academic centers in Baltimore may have Urologists with robotic (minimally invasive) surgery experience. It is also important that your baby have urine and blood tests to see if the kidney function has been affected.
