Dr. Leslie McQuiston was recently interviewed on Fox 7’s Good Day Austin Live to discuss the use of video games and biofeedback for accidental daytime and nighttime wetting (bedwetting). Parents are typically encouraged to steer their children away from video game. Children’s Urology, however, is using them to help kids overcome the common problem of wetting.
The biofeedback program of Children’s Urology was featured in the Austin American-Statesman for its innovative approaches in helping kids with wetting and urinary tract infections (UTIs). Five-year-old, Kaylen Black, was about to start kindergarten and was still having frequent bed wetting problems. Dr. Leslie McQuiston suggested a solution…video games.
Before Aaron Mitchell was born, doctors were unsure if he would survive. Sonogram pictures showed pressure building inside of Aaron’s stomach. Uncertain about his condition or fate, the Mitchell family was referred to Dr. George Seremetis, pediatric urologist of Children’s Urology, to observe pre-natally what might be the cause. He was able to give the family a name for the disorder and, more importantly, hope for Aaron’s future.
When doctors revealed an abnormality during a routine sonogram, the Mitchell’s were worried, unsure of the fate of their unborn child. They found relief, however, when they met pediatric urologist George Seremetis, MD for a prenatal counseling session.
