The diagnosis and treatment of kidney and urinary tract problems in children aged 0 to 18 is the focus of pediatric nephrology.
The kidneys play a critical role in our body by filtering and cleaning the blood, removing waste and toxic substances from the body. This also helps control blood pressure; regulate vital electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium; and secrete hormones to maintain appropriate blood counts and support bone growth and health.
HMS Mirdif Hospital, provides nephrology care for children with kidney conditions and kidney injuries. Our Pediatric Nephrologist will fully evaluate your child, and will order the needed test and make recommendations regarding therapy. Our Medical Team approach is tailored to your child’s needs using coordinated care across specialities to develop treatment plans specific to each child to guide families through all of the medical services needed to keep a child’s growth and lifestyle normal.
We treat everything from simple kidney conditions to complex issues such as chronic kidney disease, dialysis management, and kidney failure. Your child will be referred to see a pediatric nephrologist when some of these signs are showing:
? Blood or protein in the urine
? Frequent urinary infections
? High blood pressure
? Kidney stones
