Josh was a typical, bright-eyed, happy little 3 year old boy. The only difference was that Josh had an obstructed kidney. The obstruction was causing developmental problems within his ureter tube, which drains urine from the kidney. As a result, a kidney stone had formed and had lodged in the blockage. Josh’s mother took him to see Dr. Michael Keating, an expert in his field at Florida Center for Pediatric Urology.

From the moment they arrived, Josh and his family were welcomed with open arms. A special care ambassador greeted Josh and his mother with a hug and followed them throughout the entire procedure, reassuring them along the way and explaining what would happen at every step. In the skilled and caring hands of Dr. Keating and the pediatric urology team, Josh made a full recovery.
