We also manage complicated care, when dialysis or transplantation is needed. To do that, we include dietitians, social workers and specialized nurses who guide families through the maze of hospital services needed to keep a child’s growth and lifestyle normal in spite of problems with their kidneys, one of most challenging organs.

We encourage prenatal visits for expectant mothers if the baby’s ultrasound makes the doctor suspect kidney defects.

Our nephrologists manage the spectrum of care for children with kidney disease, from the earliest symptoms to complex treatments.  We provide hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, which are temporary solutions for kidney failure.  We also join with transplant surgeons to perform transplants and manage the care that follows.  Working as a team means that the division integrates the work of doctors, specialized nurse clinicians, dietitians and social workers, who guide families through the maze of hospital services needed to keep a child's growth and lifestyle normal despite abnormalities in one of medicine's most challenging organs.
