Our division provides state-of-the-art diagnosis and management for infants, children, and adolescents with all forms of congenital and acquired renal (kidney) disease including but not limited to:

  • Hypertension, Lipid Cholesterol Disorders
  • Metabolic Bone Disease, Pamidronate Therapy
  • Congenital Kidney Disease, Infant Dialysis
  • Nephrotic Syndrome
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • Hemodialysis, Peritoneal Dialysis
  • Renal Biopsy, Kidney Transplantation
  • Urinary tract defects, blockages or infections
  • Sodium, potassium, phosphate or acid imbalances

We have three clinics, located in Charlottesville, Winchester and Culpeper, VA to better serve our patient base. Home and inpatient dialysis procedures and pediatric renal transplantation are a significant aspect of our clinical activities.

We utilize an integrated approach to care in which doctors (including our colleagues in pediatric urology and pediatric surgery), nurses, social workers, nutritionists and school specialists work together to attend to the physical, emotional, social and economical needs of the child and their family.
