UTI Center

A Center for Care and Investigation of Pediatric Urinary Tract Infections

The UTI Center at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC takes a multidisciplinary approach to addressing and investigating pediatric urinary tract infections (UTI). This creates a unique setting for providing the highest level of clinical care and research.

A resource for families and clinical partners in the community, the Center focuses on UTI and the related conditions of vesicoureteral reflux and bladder and bowel dysfunction. With more than two decades of experience caring for children with UTI, our nationally recognized researchers have changed common practices for treating UTI, improving the lives of children in the process.
