Continence Clinic
U.S. News Best Hospitals

Incontinence can be a frustrating problem for both parents and kids. UCSF Children's Continence Clinic treats children with various issues pertaining to bladder and bowel dysfunction, such as daytime incontinence (wetting), bedwetting, urinating too often or not enough, constipation, urinary tract infection and stool problems. Much of the time these issues occur in otherwise healthy children, however we are experienced in ruling out a possible physical cause and recommending successful treatment.

Pediatric Urology Parent and Provider Program

The Pediatric Urology Parent and Provider Program was created to educate both referring providers and parents on bowel and bladder dysfunction. The booklet contains information that will help families understand more about their child's bladder problems and provide tips they can use at home before their first visit to the clinic.

To make an appointment, please call the number below for any necessary forms and have your child's pediatrician or specialist fax the forms back to us.
