Kidney disease and hypertension care for kids

Kidneys are immensely important organs. They clean waste from the body, make urine, control blood pressure, help the body produce red blood cells and much more.

So when something goes wrong with your child’s kidneys, you want the condition checked out and treated as soon as possible by experts in the field of nephrology, or the study of kidneys.

Children’s Minnesota has experts on our side — and at your service — to provide excellent kidney care.

Collaborative care

Our first partner in care is you—we greatly value family-centered care. After all, no one knows your child better than you do. We’ll give you clear and useful information and make sure that not only are all your questions answered, but also that all your concerns are taken into account when developing a treatment plan. The nephrology team also collaborates with other Children’s Minnesota specialists to provide comprehensive care, whether that is with our urologists or your primary care provider. At Children’s Minnesota, you have access to a broad range of specialized services for the best possible care.
