Clinical trials

The internationally known experts in the Urology program at Children's Wisconsin are committed to research on pediatric urology issues, ranging from complex congenital conditions to common urinary tract problems, so that we can provide the best, most effective treatments for kids.

Your family can help by volunteering to be a part of a clinical trial. For example, researchers at Children's have recently studied how Fesoterodine works in children aged 6 to 16 years who have bladder over-activity caused by a neurological condition. Participation is always voluntary, and Children's works to ensure that all studies are safe and ethical.
