Welcome to the Division of Nephrology, Hypertension and Apheresis
Our division provides comprehensive treatment for children who suffer from kidney or genitourologic disorders, both acute and chronic.
This includes evaluation, specialized testing, education and ongoing care, such as the provision of dialysis and kidney transplantation as treatment for chronic kidney disease. Our program is based at St. Louis Children’s Hospital — a consistently ranked hospital in the national U.S. News and World Report. Washington University School of Medicine has consistently been ranked a top medical school in the U.S. The pediatric nephrology division works closely with outstanding programs in Adult Nephrology, Pediatric Urology, Pediatric Rheumatology and Transplant Surgery. Our division has outstanding capabilities in cutting-edge research, trainee education and all levels of clinical patient care. Links on this page provide additional descriptions of each of these missions.
