The CHEO Paediatric Urology Division has a reputation in clinical research in which the residents, medical students and fellows are actively involved. They are mentored by the faculty and present their work every year at national and international meetings of the specialty. The staff physicians and trainees have regular research rounds where ideas for new research and updates on the ongoing projects are discussed. The faculty of the Urology Division has expertise in basic and clinical research and clinical epidemiology. We have ample support from the CHEO Research Institute for all the steps of research from study design and grant application to statistical analysis.
Currently there are several lines of urology research under work at CHEO including funded randomized clinical trials:
- Biofeedback for urinary incontinence in children.
- Investigation of non-palpable undescended testis
- Renal trauma
- Urodynamics in infants
- Radiological assessment of intestinal constipation
- Neuromodualtion for urinary incontinence
