Division Highlights - Nephrology

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

We offer a complete 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 corticosteroid-free maintenance immunosuppression in pediatric kidney transplant patients; pediatric kidney stone risk factors; impaired growth associated with kidney failure; peritonitis and exit site infection rates and quality outcome measures in patients on home dialysis modalities; and outcomes research in chronic kidney disease.
