Allison Redpath Mahon, MD


Allison Redpath Mahon, MD, is a UW Health Kids pediatric nephrologist and an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Nephrology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

She cares for children with kidney failure and children who need dialysis or a kidney transplants, as well as specializes in dialysis care and high blood pressure management for children with metabolic syndrome. This medical condition can cause high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.

Dr. Redpath Mahon understands it can be frightening to learn that a child has a serious kidney condition. It’s important for her to acknowledge that fear and then provide as much education about the condition as possible. When discussing a diagnosis and treatment, she makes sure to stop and ask questions to ensure everyone is on the same page.

The future of kidney care is very exciting to Dr. Redpath Mahon. She sees more treatment options for patients than have been available in recent years. Some health conditions can now be cured instead of affecting the patient for the rest of their life.

In her free time, Dr. Redpath Mahon enjoys gardening, yoga, hiking and baking with her daughter.

My hope for each of my patients is that they can take ownership of their health in an age-appropriate way and just live their best lives.
