Our multidisciplinary nephrology team provides diagnosis and treatment for children with kidney and urinary tract disease.

Nephrology

The Pediatric Nephrology team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford provides diagnosis and treatment for children with kidney (renal) and urinary tract disease, including:

  • Acute and chronic renal failure 
  • Nephrotic syndrome
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Hematuria - Blood in the urine
  • Proteinuria - Large amounts of protein in the urine
  • Hypertension - High blood pressure
  • Serum electrolytes and pH regulation disorders.
  • Complicated urinary tract infections 
  • Metabolic disorders affecting the kidneys, including cystinosis and oxalosis. Cystinosis is when cystine (a common protein-building compound) accumulates within specific cellular bodies of the kidney, known as lysosomes. Oxalosis is a buildup of a substance called oxalate in the blood after kidney failure.

The Pediatric Nephrology team also provides dialysis, transplant evaluation, and post-transplant care.
