Division Highlights - Nephrology

The Division of Nephrology provides comprehensive care for children with all types of kidney disease.

We offer a comprehensive range of renal replacement therapies for both acute and chronic renal failure, with successful transplantation the ultimate goal for children with kidney failure.  We are internationally recognized experts in pediatric renal transplantation and novel prednisone-free immunosuppression.

Research interests include pediatric kidney stones and bone disorders, impaired growth associated with kidney failure, peritonitis rates and outcomes measures in patients on home dialysis, and outcomes research in chronic kidney disease.
