• Nephrology

    Kentucky Children's Hospital 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. Dialysis and transplantation services are also available.

    We understand that the impact of kidney disorders goes far beyond the initial diagnosis and treatment, so we've created a team of specialists who give families the support they need to deal with the long-term effects of what can be a chronic, life-changing disease. Nurses, psychologists and social workers will work with patients and their families to cope with the lifestyle changes.
