“I came to NewYork-Presbyterian to work with Weill Cornell Medicine’s outstanding physicians, and to build a model of care replicable in other boroughs,” Dr. Wiygul said. “This is an opportunity to bring an unprecedented quality of care to the borough of Queens.”
Dr. Wiygul is one of only 250 pediatric urologists in the United States, and performs the latest surgical techniques, including robotic-assisted and laparoscopic surgery, for correcting many urologic conditions.

Dr. Wiygul developed a mobile application designed for treating children with urinary incontinence. The application, HapPee Time, allows recording of dietary and toileting habits data in children in a log-type format, as well as rewarding good behavior with badges. It also allows information gathered from the app to be emailed to a treating physician, who can then use the data to make further health recommendations. The application is available on Google Play and the App Store.
