What we do
The Division of Nephrology provides a comprehensive range of clinical services for children with renal disorders.
Ambulatory and In-patient Care
The general nephrology program provides specialized services to infants, children and adolescents with a wide range of renal disease such as malformations of the urinary tract, hematuria, proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome, hypertension, renal stones, hereditary renal disease, fluid and electrolytes disorders and acute and chronic glomerular diseases. We also see expectant mothers with fetal renal disorders. Using a multidisciplinary approach, our team provides comprehensive, family-centered care and service for inpatients and outpatients.
The Kidney Transplant Program evaluates children who are potential candidates for transplantation, and manages the care of children who have received transplanted kidneys.
The Division of Nephrology provides both home based peritoneal dialysis and nocturnal hemodialysis and in-hospital haemodialysis , and more. In 2002 we initiated the Nocturnal Home Haemodialysis Program, the first of its kind for children in North America. For children with acute renal failure, the division supports all forms of continuous renal replacement therapy, such as acute haemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and continuous renal replacement therapy.
