Our Kidney Team specializes in the care of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults with conditions affecting or related to the kidneys. Your child’s doctor may recommend a visit to a kidney specialist for many different reasons including swelling of your child’s body, blood in the urine, protein in the urine, high blood pressure, or abnormal lab results.
