Kidney and high blood pressure care

Children who have kidney diseases or high blood pressure get expert care at Penn State Children’s Hospital Division of Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension

We care for children of all ages - infants through teens. We work closely with you and your child at every step, through tests, treatments and beyond. Caring doctors and staff treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and many kidney problems, including:

  • Kidney stones
  • Blood in the urine
  • Protein in the urine
  • Kidney problems at birth (congenital)
  • Sudden (acute) kidney failure
  • Ongoing (chronic) kidney disease
  • End stage kidney disease
  • Chemical problems in the blood

Our staff treats serious kidney diseases in kids, including dialysis (when a machine filters water and waste from the blood when the kidneys can’t) and kidney transplants.
