Dialysis Program

Children with chronic kidney disease need special care. The kidney specialists at Children’s Hospital analyze nutrition, metabolic status and growth to find the best outcomes possible for children with kidney disease. Dialysis treatments may be performed at home, in the outpatient clinic or the hospital.

For children with chronic kidney disease treated with dialysis, our ultimate goal is a successful kidney transplant.
