Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kurtz "As a pediatric urologist, I am passionate about the care of children with urologic conditions. As a parent, my goal is to give each patient and family the care I would give my own child. I prioritize communication – my hope is that every parent feels fully informed about their child's condition as we work as a team to make them better. I feel privileged to work at a place like Boston Children's Hospital, which has a tremendous spirit of collaboration toward children's health.  In additional to surgery I am also dedicated to research so that we can bring the latest in ideas and technology to care for children today."
