Pediatric nephrology: Conditions we treat at the children's hospital
When your child is hurting, you don’t want to wait for answers or treatments to get them feeling better.
That’s why our nephrology team is committed to seeing your child within 48 hours of your call.
Better yet, we often bring them in that same day. We built our practice to do things how we believe they should be done – and put our patients and their families first.
Our team of children’s nephrologists will be able to help identify kidney conditions in your child and discuss the best treatment options moving forward
Acute or chronic kidney (renal) failure (sudden or long-term failure)
