Pediatric Nephrology

Nephrologist Tammy BradyWith pediatric cardiologist Shetarra Walker, pediatric nephrologist Tammy Brady has created a multi-disciplinary clinic to treat a growing population of obese and hypertensive patients.

The Division of Pediatric Nephrology specializes in the diagnosis and management of children with a variety of acute and chronic kidney-related disorders. The division evaluates and treats hypertension, hematuria, proteinuria, renal tubular acidosis, nephrolithiasis, glomerulonephritis and kidney failure. It also provides comprehensive care for pediatric patients with end-stage kidney disease, including care to patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis and follow-up care after kidney transplantation.

The division is committed to performing research in an effort to improve treatment and outcomes in pediatric patients with advanced kidney disease. Faculty members have diverse research interests and are involved in a number of studies that evaluate various aspects of care provided to children with kidney disease.

The division also strives to enhance the well-being of patients and their families through many advocacy projects, including a transplant reunion and Camp All-Stars, an overnight program for children, teens and young adults with kidney disease.
