Uretero-pelvic junction obstruction is a disorder that interrupts the flow of urine from the kidney to the ureter. The obstruction can be caused by a congenital defect or scar tissue forming in the area. The condition is most frequently diagnosed in childhood but can be seen in individuals of any age. Symptoms include urinary tract infection, blood in the urine, and abdominal pain. Symptoms of pain can lead to kidney damage, infection, or stone formation. We specialize in congenital and acquired obstructions in our state-of-the-art operating suite that features technologically advanced laser and robotic equipment.
