FAQs

Which doctors treat prune belly syndrome?
Prune belly syndrome is treated by pediatric urologist or pediatric surgeons. Abnormalities of the urinary tract are treated by urologists/ pediatric urologists. Abdominal reconstruction may require the specialties of a plastic surgeon.

Do children with prune belly syndrome survive till adulthood?
Yes. With proper treatment, many patients with prune belly syndrome do live a near-normal life.

Why is surgical correction of undescended testes necessary?
The location of the testes in the scrotum exposes them to lower temperatures than in the abdomen. This ensures effective production of sperms by the testes. Undescended testes, if left untreated, could lead to complications like sterility and cancer. Hence surgical correction is warranted before any damage occurs to the testes.
