Doctor seizes opportunity to help children

Deciding on a career path is not an easy task for most, however for Eran Rosenberg, M.D., he always knew he wanted to be in the medical field helping people, especially children.

“Treating children is the most rewarding feeling,” said Dr. Rosenberg, pediatric urologist with a new practice, Norton Children’s Hospital Urology Specialists, funded through the Children’s Hospital Foundation.

Dr. Rosenberg was raised in Israel and attended medical school at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Beer-Sheva, Israel. He completed his urological residency at Soroka University Medical Center in Beer-Sheva before making his way to the United States to complete his fellowship at Miami Children’s Hospital in Florida.

“People often ask me how did I end up in Louisville,” Dr. Rosenberg said. “After I completed my fellowship in Miami, I was looking to work in a free-standing children’s hospital in a nice city with friendly people and a good education system. Louisville was the perfect fit!”

Dr. Rosenberg and his wife have three children, ages 7, 6 and 3, who keep him busy outside of work.

“With three kids I can’t say I have too much free time, but I try to spend as much time as I can with my kids and try to share with them my love of nature and the outdoors,” Dr. Rosenberg said. “We especially enjoy traveling to exotic and interesting countries when we get the chance. I am a skilled scuba diver, so I love taking up this hobby when I’m in the right place at the right time.”

At home, Dr. Rosenberg enjoys carpentry and woodworking. In fact, he built the majority of the furniture in his previous home.

“My surgical training probably had something to do with my love for carpentry,” Dr. Rosenberg said. “Creating something from scratch and building from the ground up gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride.”

The saying carpe diem resonates with Dr. Rosenberg as he cares for children who come to him for urological treatment. The Latin phrase means “seize the day.”

“Despite the everyday routine, I’ve learned to enjoy the present and make the most of every day, both personally and professionally, helping children and their families receive the best possible care.”

Norton Children’s Hospital Urology Specialists is located on the Norton Healthcare – St. Matthews campus in Norton Medical Plaza 3, Suite 102, 4123 Dutchmans Lane. For more information, call (502) 559-1670.
