Pediatric Nephrology At USA Health
Children, like adults, rely on properly functioning kidneys and other parts of the urinary tract to filter waste from their blood. When those organs don’t function properly, patients can face numerous complications. At USA Health, our pediatric nephrology team works diligently to diagnose, treat and manage the various disorders that can affect the kidneys.
Our pediatric nephrologists specialize in treating inherited kidney diseases, chronic kidney disease and kidney stones.
Diagnosis and Treatment
When you turn to one of our pediatric nephrologists for help, after examining your child the doctor may order tests such as a urinalysis, blood work or biopsy. After carefully evaluating test results, our specialists make treatment recommendations that may include blood pressure monitoring, dialysis, medication or other treatment options.
