The mission of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology is three-fold: 1) to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for patients with acute and chronic kidney disease, 2) to be at the forefront of research and discoveries to advance our understanding of kidney disease and its prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, and 3) to train physicians in the best practices in pediatric nephrology. The Division has four full-time faculty members and provides comprehensive care for a wide range of conditions that affect newborns, infants, children, adolescents and young adults including: acute, chronic and end stage kidney disease, fluid and electrolyte abnormalities, glomerulonephritis, hematuria, proteinuria and hypertension, nephrotic syndrome and urinary tract malformations.
The Division of Pediatric Nephrology provides the following procedures and services: kidney biopsy, peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, continuous renal replacement therapy, and kidney transplantation.
The Division of Pediatric Nephrology is comprised of a dedicated interdisciplinary team which includes physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, dietitians, and social workers fully committed to the principle of family-centered care. This includes the care of our patients and the support of their families through education and available resources.
