Pediatric Kidney Care

Kidney disease can affect pediatric patients in many ways, including treatable short-term conditions and life-threatening disorders.

Kidney disease in children may show up in prenatal ultrasounds, may not be noticed until the teen years or it may occur anywhere along the way. In all situations, these conditions can be stressful and disruptive for the entire family.
