The Children's Kidney Center

Since 1996, The Pediatric Nephrology and Transplantation Program has been improving the quality of life for New Jersey’s youngest patients with renal disease, renal dysfunction and hypertension.

About our Children's Kidney Services

Our pediatric nephrology services are aimed at serving families who are struggling with kidney and hypertensive disorders. The pediatric nephrology team includes dedicated, accomplished surgeons and specialists who have performed more kidney transplants than any other healthcare facility in the state.

Your child may be referred to our Children's Kidney Program if they are experiencing:

  • Kidney stones
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Blood in their urine (hematuria)
  • Protein in their urine (proteinuria)
  • Hypertension
  • Immune- medicated conditions
  • Kidney failure

Our Children's Kidney Program also provides comprehensive pre-natal counseling for expecting mothers and families. Our skilled professionals can help test for genetic diseases and fetal renal anomalies while a child is still in utero and, if needed, recommend and provide treatment.

The Children's Kidney Program consistently exceeds the national average for kidney transplant success. We regularly work with families where parents are prepared to donate a kidney to their child and provide state-of-the-art care throughout every stage of the transplant process.
