Comprehensive evaluation of renal functions, including kidney biopsies, are provided by the Division of Nephrology. The division's physicians treat kidney disorders in children including:

  • Congenital anomalies of the urinary tract including vesicoureteral reflux and obstructive uropathy
  • Electrolyte imbalance
  • Renal parenchyma diseases including glomerulonephritis
  • Tubular diseases
  • Collagen vascular diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus.


Dialysis for patients suffering from acute renal failure is also performed through the pediatric nephrology program. The dialysis program includes hemodialysis, acute and chronic peritoneal dialysis and continuous arteriovenous hemofiltration.
