We care for infants, children, and adolescents with all forms of kidney disease and high blood pressure.
We provide a multidisciplinary team approach to patient care – our physicians, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, and social workers work together to provide the best care for every child. We work in close affiliation with pediatric urology, pediatric radiology, renal pathology, pediatric cardiology, vascular surgery, and transplant surgery divisions.
Our nephrologists remain at the forefront of techniques for treatment through research in hypertension, dialysis, and transplantation. Ongoing research studies focus on managing chronic kidney disease (CKD) and high blood pressure. We collaborate with most national and some international pediatric research networks to better understand how to manage our patients and their disorders.
