Kidney Disease (Nephrology) 


The Division of Pediatric Nephrology at the NewYork-Presbyterian Phyllis and David Komansky Center for Children's Health has excellent outcomes in the treatment of children with different kidney diseases, as well as those who ultimately require kidney transplantation. Infants and children with complex kidney diseases benefit from a full range of treatment options, including management of:

  • hematuria (blood in the urine)
  • proteinuria (protein in the urine)
  • hemolytic uremic syndrome
  • Gittleman’s syndrome
  • Bartter syndrome
  • congenital kidney anomalies
  • nephrotic syndrome
  • acute glomerulonephritis
  • acute kidney failure
  • chronic kidney disease
  • hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • kidney stone disease
  • electrolyte disorders
  • metabolic acidosis

Kidney failure in children could lead to consequences that include growth failure, anemia, bone disease, and disruptions to acid base and electrolyte balance. Our pediatric nephrologists manage the kidney disease of children, including the period preceding a kidney transplant, should that be necessary. Our aim is to manage the disease with the goal of preventing the need for kidney transplantation. In other cases, we may be able to prolong the kidney’s ability to function.
