Appropriate management of renal failure and early initiation of dialysis and renal transplantation is particularly important in children with end-stage renal disease considering the long life expectancy in children. Management of nutrition and immunization also poses challenges in children with kidney disease. The Division of Pediatric Nephrology specializes in the diagnosis and management of children with a variety of acute and chronic kidney-related disorders.
We evaluate and treat children with complicated nephrotic syndrome, hypertension, hematuria, proteinuria, renal tubular acidosis, nephrolithiasis, glomerulonephritis, acute and chronic kidney failure. We also provide comprehensive care for pediatric patients with end-stage kidney disease, including care to patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis, pre-transplant workup and follow-up care of children after kidney transplantation.
