Pediatric Nephrology

Pediatric Nephrology

The Department of Pediatric Nephrology is engaged in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of kidney and urinary tract diseases in children from birth. Often, parents need to consult a specialist if the child had malformations, infections, injuries that led to the disruption of the excretory system.

A timely diagnosed disease increases the chances of a successful recovery and complete restoration of the functions of the excretory system without complications and relapses. Often in infants up to the first year of life, diseases of the urinary system are associated with previously diagnosed anomalies in the development of organs. As a result, there is an increased risk of infectious pathologies that are extremely difficult for newborns due to an unformed immune system.

What diseases treated in the department? 

The Department of Pediatric Nephrology treats the following pathologies: 

  • renal dysplasia;
  • pyelonephritis;
  • nephropathy;
  • tubulopathy;
  • hemolico-uremic syndrome;
  • developmental anomalies;
  • jade;
  • cystitis and other urinary tract infections.

It is worth noting that the kidneys are the body responsible for removing metabolic products from the body. Any malfunction in the genitourinary system has a strong effect on the body. A man poisons himself and then dies. Therefore, to prevent the development of dangerous pathologies, it is necessary to contact a specialist immediately.
