Kidney disease in children is a complex disease that affects more than a child’s physical health. It affects all aspects of a child’s life, including growth and emotional and cognitive development, as well as the child’s family. That’s why our nephrologists take a comprehensive approach to care.
Kidney transplantation can change a child’s life, and the problems they face are different from adult transplant patients. So we work with the entire family to evaluate, treat and support every child before, during and long after the transplantation surgery. For more information visit the UK Transplant Center.
