About Duong Tu
I have had the good fortune to train in one of the best pediatric institutions in the world, giving me what I believe to be all of the necessary tools and expertise to provide the highest level of care for my patients. As a parent, my approach to pediatric care possesses an extra depth, a true understanding that you are entrusting me with the most precious thing in your life. My duty is to keep him or her safe by delivering the best care possible in a healing environment, and at the same time give you the reassurances and expertise that every parent needs.
I was recruited to work in the Complex Urogenital Reconstruction Program to care for patients with neurogenic bladder, hypospadias and disorders of sexual differentiation. Our department has a mission goal to elevate this program to be a Center of Excellence for comprehensive urologic care. I have a research focus on improving the quality and safety of care for our patients and developing evidenced based practice guidelines to promote better outcomes for pediatric patients with both acute and chronic urologic conditions.
