    The Division of Pediatric Nephrology provides diagnosis, treatment and management of childhood renal diseases. These conditions include kidney infections, inherited diseases involving the kidneys, acute and chronic kidney failure, inflammatory diseases, and protein or blood in the urine. Specialists give families the support they need to deal with the long-term effects of what can be a chronic, life-changing disease.
