"I was initially attracted to nephrology before I ever attended medical school. Working as a nurse, I cared for a 12-year-old boy with kidney failure. We provided life-saving peritoneal dialysis, but at that time (the late 1970s) such therapy severely compromised a patient’s quality of life. I was thrilled when he received a successful kidney transplant, enabling him to come off dialysis and resume a more normal life. Even after all these years I am still excited when a child gets the special gift of a new kidney."

Coral Hanevold, MD, is an attending nephrologist at Seattle Children’s, the Medical Director of Nephrology at Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital and a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Washington School of Medicine.

She completed her clinical training in Pediatric Nephrology at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children and a second fellowship in Pediatric Nephrology and Transplant Immunology at UCLA. Her work focuses on clinical practice, including general nephrology, hypertension, dialysis and transplantation. Dr. Hanevold has experience in clinical research, particularly in the area of hypertension, and has participated in several industry-sponsored trials of antihypertensive medications in children.

    Dr. Coral Hanevold is an outstanding doctor. She recognizes that the parents and siblings are very much affected by the patient's illness. As a Social worker and mother of a child whose kidneys failed this aspect of Dr. Hanevold's professional care was very important and life-saving for my family. Seattle Children's gained a wonderful, caring and thorough doctor. I consider her a friend and keep in touch.
