Treatments for Kidney Failure in Children

Treating children with kidney failure is a team effort between your family, your child and your specialized care team. Our doctors are exceptional at what they do and will work towards the long-term good health of your child, while slowing the decline of kidney function. As you consider your child’s options, know that we specialize in both types of blood-filtering methods: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. 

If your child's kidney disease progresses to the point of needing a kidney transplant, our skilled transplant team are your champions and expert resources whenever you need us. Thanks to our pioneering research, steroids are no longer necessary post-surgery to maintain the body's acceptance of the new kidney.
