The comprehensive pediatric nephrology team at Arkansas Children’s takes care of children with common problems such as hematuria, or blood in the urine, and urinary tract infections to more complex issues such as kidney failure and kidney transplantation. We work in partnership with your family to help each child reach the best level of physical, social and emotional health possible.

Our multidisciplinary team includes nephrologists, clinical nurse specialists, social workers and nutritionists. In addition to comprehensive medical consultations and evaluations for children with kidney diseases, electrolyte disorders and hypertension, we deliver superb clinical care that is matched with an equal measure of understanding and compassion. Services include:

  • Treating children who have potential medical complications from chronic kidney disease, such as anemia, bone disease, high blood pressure and poor growth
  • Preparing children for dialysis and kidney transplant, when necessary
  • Delivering quality medical care while addressing the psychosocial needs of our patients and their families

Early Detection to Prevent Kidney Injury

Identifying risks of acute kidney injury or kidney failure through early detection can help prevent long-term damage. Nephrologists at Arkansas Children’s work closely with other divisions within the hospital to detect, monitor and treat kidney injury before it causes irreparable damage.

The risk factors that can lead to acute kidney injury include heart disease, major surgeries, chemotherapy, sepsis and nephrotoxic medication exposure. By identifying these risks and working collaboratively with other physicians, nephrologists at Arkansas Children can help identify the risks and seek to limit patients’ exposure.
