“I care for each child as I would want my own child cared for.”
This is the philosophy of Robert Mevorach, M.D., F.S.P.U., F.A.A.P., Director of Pediatric Urology at Chesapeake Urology For Kids, a comprehensive pediatric urology program that cares for urologic issues in children, from the common to the complex. Dr. Mevorach is one of the foremost fellowship-trained pediatric urologists in the Mid-Atlantic region and the program is complemented by a team of dedicated urologists, nurses, pediatric sonographers, pediatric anesthesiologists, OR staff, medical assistants and office staff – all with the goal of providing comprehensive, gentle and personal care to pediatric patients throughout the region.
Chesapeake Urology For Kids covers the urologic needs of pediatric patients throughout the greater Baltimore region, providing specialized urologic care for children, from pre-birth and infants through adolescents.
Open, Honest Communication is Key
Chesapeake Urology For Kids takes a team approach to care. Dr. Mevorach, along with the program’s entire pediatric urology team, believes strongly in open and honest communication between staff, patients and parents, creating an environment of trust and compassionate care that is the hallmark of the program’s patient care philosophy.
The team understands that any health issue concerning a child is not only stressful and frightening for the patient, but also for the parents, which is why Dr. Mevorach and his team emphasize education, understanding, an open dialogue and a personal approach to care.
As part of this open communication, not only are parents encouraged to ask questions, but the team takes the time to explain complex conditions on a level that younger children can understand. Children are always encouraged to ask questions and discuss any concerns with Dr. Mevorach and the staff.
"It's vital to always think of our patients' need first," says Dr. Mevorach. "At Chesapeake Urology for Kids, we are here to guide our patients to better health."
Dedicated Pediatric Surgery Site

From sheets that kids can color on and kid-friendly gowns and slippers to flavored lip balms kids can choose for a fun smelling surgical mask, the surgical team is committed to making a child’s experience as comfortable as possible.
