Nephrology

With a team of full-time, Board-certified and fellowship-trained subspecialists in pediatric nephrology, The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital offers the largest and most active pediatric nephrology program north of Boston.

Our team provides inpatient and outpatient care for infants, children and adolescents with all types of kidney disease, from routine conditions to the most complex. Our team of pediatric nephrologists is one of the few in New England to provide prenatal consultations, helping mothers-to-be make treatment decisions prior to the birth of a child known to have kidney or urinary tract abnormalities.
