Chief of Pediatric Urology
Craig Peters, M.D., treats children with urological problems and specializes in urinary tract infections, fetal urology, and minimally invasive surgery. He is the Division Director of Pediatric Urology at Children's Health℠ and a Professor of Urology at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
Dr. Peters is on a mission to make surgery faster, easier, and less scary for his patients. He joined Children’s Health in 2015 and spearheaded its robotic surgery program, where doctors use a robotic surgical system to make surgery more accurate and precise. Every surgeon in this program is certified in the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System, which is one of the most advanced robotic systems available today. This minimizes complications and helps many children recover faster.
Dr. Peters and his colleagues perform some of the country’s highest numbers of laparoscopic and robotic surgeries for pediatric urology conditions. Laparoscopic surgery uses tiny instruments and a camera to perform operations through small incisions. This means less-noticeable scars, less pain, and a shorter hospital stay.
Dr. Peters has helped define best clinical practices in pediatric urology and led the writing of the most recent guidelines in managing vesicoureteral reflux, a common urological condition in children. He has also been an advisor to the NIH and the American Urological Association. He is also the pediatric editor of the premier Urology textbook.
Dr. Peters earned his medical degree from John Hopkins University. He completed his urology residency at the Brady Urological Institute at Johns Hopkins and did fellowship training at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School.
He lives in Dallas with his wife of 35 years and enjoys cycling vacations with his family.
