Pediatric Nephrology and Urology

by Brian Alverson, MD

Pediatric nephrology and urology focus on the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra in children. Specialists in this field provide care and management to children with various renal pathologies such as urinary tract infections, nephrotic syndrome, vesicoureteral reflux, hematuria, proteinuria, hypertension, electrolyte disorders, complications of kidney stones, and enuresis (bed-wetting) disorders. In some cases, a urologist may be required to perform a procedural/surgical intervention to correct a congenital deformity or remove a large kidney stone. In advanced cases of renal failure, pediatric nephrologists also guide dialysis treatments and management of long-term renal complications.
