What Sets Us Apart

At Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital of New York at NYU Langone, nephrologists, or kidney specialists, are experienced in caring for children with chronic kidney disease, a condition that causes progressive, irreversible kidney damage. 

Chronic kidney disease can occur in children who are born with a congenital kidney problem, in which the kidneys develop abnormally, blocking the flow of urine. It can also develop in children who have conditions involving inflammation of the kidneys, such as lupus or glomerulonephritis.

Children with chronic kidney disease may have bone and growth problems, anemia, a buildup of acids in the blood, and electrolyte imbalances. Without proper management, this condition can rapidly progress to kidney failure, or end-stage kidney disease.

Our kidney specialists collaborate with radiologists, rheumatologists, and urologists and endocrinologists to identify the underlying cause of the condition and determine the most effective treatment. Doctors at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital participate in clinical trials, in which promising new therapies for chronic kidney disease are tested.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Treatment for chronic kidney disease usually involves medication and dietary changes to improve kidney function.
