The U.S. News & World Report 2013-2014 “Best Children’s Hospital” edition ranks Mount Sinai in seven specialities.
Innovative Medicine, Family-Centered Care
Ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best in the country, the Division of Pediatric Nephrology of Kravis Children’s Hospital at Mount Sinai provides specialized, family-centered care to children with kidney disease, high blood pressure, urinary tract infections, and a wide variety of related conditions.
As one of our country’s largest and most respected centers for pediatric kidney care and a pioneer in research and education, we deliver specialized, evidence-based care to children with kidney disease, high blood pressure, urinary tract infections and a wide variety of related conditions, both common and complex.
At the Children’s Center for Complete Kidney Care, our patients receive A to Z services, benefiting from our multidisciplinary team of pediatric nephrologists, urologists, transplantation specialists, psychiatrists, registered nurses, social workers, nutritionists and child life specialists working together to deliver the most effective treatment. Understanding that children require a special level of support and service, we bring families into their circle of care, and, as our patients become young adults, we help transition them into our excellent adult kidney program.
What We Treat
Our teaching and research programs in pediatric kidney disease serve to drive and maintain our expertise at the highest level. Working closely with our colleagues in diagnostic radiology, pediatric urology, and transplant surgery, we offer advanced diagnostic services and confident and experienced care for all kidney-related conditions, including every type of treatment for kidney failure:
- Dialysis (hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis)
- Kidney transplant, multiple organ transplant
We are a major referral center for children with high blood pressure, offering state-of-the art diagnostics such as ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), a home-based measure that allows us to be sure hypertension is present, and we provide comprehensive treatment plans that include a focus on diet, physical activity, and stress factors.
As a Center of Excellence in Transplantation, we are one of the most sought after pediatric kidney transplant centers in the country. During the past five years, we provided kidney transplants to twice as many children as any other New York hospital, and, even more significant, the outcomes of those transplants were superior, as verified by the US Department of Health and Human Services.* We offer fast appointments and a streamlined consultation process for patients and their physicians.
