Treatments we provide

General nephrology

We provide a complete range of diagnosis and treatment for infants, children and adolescents with kidney and urinary tract disorders. The team works with children on both an inpatient and outpatient basis.


Dialysis is a treatment that cleans the body of waste products and water when your kidneys are no longer able to. We provide two types of outpatient therapy, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. In-center hemodialysis is performed in our dedicated pediatric dialysis unit.

Kidney transplant

We are the only pediatric nephrology, dialysis and transplant provider in West Michigan. Our pediatric nephrology program offers comprehensive nephrology care for patients in all stages of chronic kidney disease.
