Pediatric Nephrology

If your child has kidney or urinary tract disease, bladder problems, kidney stones, or high blood pressure, a pediatric nephrologist has the special skills and experience to treat your child. Pediatric nephrologists treat children from infancy through late adolescence and in some centers up to young adulthood.

Pediatric nephrologists diagnose, treat, and manage many disorders affecting the kidney and urinary tract, including kidney failure, high blood pressure, inherited kidney diseases, kidney stones, urinary tract infections, and abnormalities in the urine such as blood and protein. They also know how to evaluate and treat problems with growth and development that are specifically related to chronic kidney disease. They are also skilled in helping patients transition from pediatric nephrologists to nephrologists and urologists that care for adult patients.

Pediatric nephrologists are the coordinators of a team that includes specialized nurses, dieticians, and social workers, all dedicated to the care of children with kidney diseases. They work closely with other physicians such as pediatric urologists, pediatric surgeons, and pediatric radiologists.

This Topical collection focusing on pediatric renal transplantation will make it easier for multi-disciplinary teams to get insight into the issues they face, by drawing together up-to-date basic science and clinically relevant reviews in Pediatric Nephrology. Our aim is thereby to improve care and outcomes for our patients and their dedicated families who tirelessly support them.

ASPN has always valued and been strengthened by the diversity of our pediatric nephrology community. As we all move forward to work to overcome the challenges that still exist to create a more just and equitable nation, ASPN will continue to promote tolerance and pluralism within our community.

In addition to leading active research programs, our Pediatric Nephrology faculty includes several National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant winners and NIH Training Grant participants. Division faculty publish more than 10 original manuscripts per year, as well as writing reviews and chapters for key nephrology and pediatric texts. Dr. Michel Baum is editor-in-chief of the journal Pediatric Nephrology.

Pediatric nephrology fellows, residents, and medical students all benefit from the academic excellence and leadership embodied by our faculty. Our Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship Program ensures that fellows effectively evaluate and manage patients. Much of the success of this program relies on faculty providing one-on-one teaching and delivering valuable didactic lectures in clinical nephrology.

The goal of our Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship Program is to train postdoctoral fellows for careers in academic pediatric nephrology. The Program trains fellows to evaluate and manage patients with fluid and electrolyte disorders and renal disease. Didactic and one-on-one teaching provide a strong clinical foundation. Our Fellowship is one of only a handful of programs funded by a National Institutes of Health T32 grant.

When your child is living with a kidney condition, we give them the compassionate, expert care they need to feel and be their best. From advanced diagnosis and treatment options to nation-leading transplant outcomes, the Atrium Health Levine Children's pediatric nephrology team delivers best-in-class kidney care for your child.

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the country's top destinations for pediatric kidney care, we offer an expert team of doctors, nurses and around-the-clock specialists dedicated to getting your child back to good health. And we combine this nationally renowned expertise with Levine Children's Hospital's child-focused care and amenities to bring you care that's both leading-edge and kid friendly.

For children with end-stage kidney disease, we offer nationally recognized kidney transplant care from a large team of specialists. Your child's care team includes transplant surgeons, transplant nephrologists, pediatric intensive care nurses and staff, pediatric dialysis nurses and child life specialists.

The Division of Pediatric Nephrology specializes in the diagnosis and management of children with a variety of acute and chronic kidney-related disorders. The division evaluates and treats hypertension, hematuria, proteinuria, renal tubular acidosis, nephrolithiasis, glomerulonephritis and kidney failure. It also provides comprehensive care for pediatric patients with end-stage kidney disease, including care to patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis and follow-up care after kidney transplantation.

The division is committed to performing research in an effort to improve treatment and outcomes in pediatric patients with advanced kidney disease. Faculty members have diverse research interests and are involved in a number of studies that evaluate various aspects of care provided to children with kidney disease.

All of our physicians are board-certified providers of adolescent and pediatric nephrology and hypertension. We collaborate with Pediatric Rheumatology to treat patients with kidney and rheumatologic disease and with Pediatric Urology for patients with kidney and urologic disorders.

We are actively conducting research in congenital and inherited kidney disorders, and we are working in conjunction with the Pediatric Clinical Pharmacology Program to find new treatments of pediatric and adolescent kidney disease and hypertension.

Our stand-alone pediatric dialysis clinic is one of the largest in the country, and offers hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. A multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers and kidney dietitians work together to provide exceptional care for children who are experiencing kidney failure.

UF Health Shands Children's Hospital is located within UF Health Shands Hospital and is the second-largest children's hospital in Florida. It is the only comprehensive pediatric facility in North Central Florida.

Our nephrology team is nationally recognized for its innovation, experience and expertise. Our family-centered program provides treatment, nutrition planning and education to promote success. We have the newest hemodialysis technology and provide comprehensive kidney transplant care to children of all ages.

Our transplant center is part of a nationwide pediatric kidney transplant outcomes improvement network (the Improving Renal Outcomes Collaborative, or IROC). This network seeks to improve long term health outcomes and quality of life for children with kidney transplants.

Our pediatric specialists provide patient- and family-centered care for most related conditions. The links below provide more specific information about some, but not all, of the conditions that we treat.

The pediatric nephrology team at Riley at IU Health works with primary care physicians, pediatricians and nephrologists throughout Indiana and the Midwest to provide specialized care at Indiana University Health facilities.

Our department partners with the Indiana University School of Medicine to train the next generation of pediatric nephrologists. Our Nephrology Fellowship Program gives fellows experience in managing both common and complex cases. The program is also home to an accredited transplant nephrology fellowship.

The mission of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension is three-fold: to provide compassionate, state-of-the-art care for patients with acute and chronic kidney disease; to be at the forefront of research and discoveries that advance our understanding of kidney disease and its prevention, diagnosis, and treatment; and to train physicians in the best practices in pediatric nephrology.

The division currently receives National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other research support for basic science, clinical, and translational research. Our broad research areas encompass cell biology of kidney tubular response to ischemia and hypoxia injury or urinary tract obstruction, pathogenesis of acute kidney injury and chronic kidney disease, observation studies in glomerular disease, gene discoveries for congenital anomalies of the kidney and urology tract, and genetic studies for chronic kidney disease. We have ongoing and fruitful collaborations with precision medicine, adult nephrology, pathology, and neonatal intensive care that are providing knowledge that will serve as the basis of future therapies for kidney disease. In addition, the division participates in the national and international collaborations including the SCOPE Dialysis Collaborative and the North American Pediatric Renal Trials and Collaborative Studies (NAPRTCS).

The division is heavily invested in educating future generations of pediatric nephrologists. Since 2012 we have been one of the most popular subspecialties for medical student and resident rotations. Two of our fellows have been named Fellow of the Year and one faculty member was voted Attending of the Year by pediatric residents at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Through the Nephrology Fellowship, we train pediatric nephrologists to achieve high competence in patient care, renal research, and education. The program emphasizes hands-on learning and didactic teaching, and through a rigorous curriculum fellows gain competency in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide spectrum of acute and chronic kidney diseases in children.

The division was established in the 1970s. In 2011 the hospital and medical school jointly recruited a new division chief, expanded the number of faculty members from two to five, and established a pediatric nephrology fellowship program accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. These changes positioned the division to meet our patient-care, education, and research missions.

The pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension program at Monroe Carell treats symptoms and manages care for infants, children and adolescents with kidney and urinary tract conditions and diseases. Whether your child needs an evaluation or has a condition requiring a kidney transplant, we understand the unique challenges of children living with kidney problems. Our specialists work with you and your family to answer your questions and create a unique plan of care. 041b061a72
