Nephrology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of kidney problems. Seattle Children's is a national leader in caring for babies, children and teens with kidney conditions, including the most complex disorders. We have a transplant program, as well as the only dialysis unit in the region just for babies, children and teens. All of Seattle Children's nephrology programs focus on the special needs of growing children with kidney disease.
Our doctors, nurses, dietitians and social workers believe in working with you to provide complete care that meets the unique needs of your child and family. Along with providing state-of-the-art treatment, we offer follow-up care and support services that include home dialysis training, summer camp for children with kidney disorders, a newsletter and special activities planned just for children and their families.
