Doctors collaborate to save a little girl’s life

When Harlee Parrish was just 18 months old, her parents were informed that she had a complex calyceal diverticulum, or poorly draining pocket, in her left kidney. Harlee went four years without any infections when she suddenly became sick with the worst kidney infection of her life.

Her parents knew that this was going to be life-changing and turned to UF Health.

UF Health pediatric urologist Christopher Bayne, M.D., and UF Health pediatric radiologist Priya Sharma, M.D., collaborated using both MRI and intra-operative imaging to customize a robotic surgery for Harlee focused on preserving her kidney and saving her life.
