The Division of Pediatric Nephrology provides outpatient consultation and inpatient hospitalization for children from infancy to adolescence who suffer from renal disease or hypertension. We are able to provide kidney transplantation as well as long-term and short-term dialysis treatments. The Pediatric Nephrology team also provides prenatal consultation for congenital anomalies of the kidneys and urinary tract (CAKUT) at the Center for Advanced Fetal Care and collaborates closely with the Division Pediatric Surgery to provide comprehensive management of children with urologic disease and kidney transplantation.
