The Pediatric Nephrology Division aims to provide comprehensive, outpatient consultative care for children with kidney-related concerns including; hematuria, proteinuria, hypertension, nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, recurrent UTI’s, vesicoureteral reflux, congenital urinary tract anomalies, cystic kidney diseases, hereditary kidney diseases, kidney stones, tubular disorders, disorders of calcium/phosphorus/bone metabolism, kidney failure and kidney transplantation.
We provide a full range of acute inpatient care for children experiencing hypertensive urgency/emergency, acute nephritis and acute renal failure including diagnostic percutaneous renal biopsy. Our pediatric nephrology and dialysis support staff offer a complete range of renal replacement therapies including peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis, CVVH and CVVHD to support children requiring renal replacement therapy.
For those children with chronic kidney failure we offer home peritoneal dialysis or in-center outpatient hemodialysis in our state of the art American Family Children’s Hospital. The goal of care for children with renal failure is successful renal transplantation. We offer nationally and internationally recognized expertise in transplant surgery and pediatric renal transplantation, particularly in the area of novel immunosuppression options including “prednisone-free”.
