Conditions and treatments
Conditions affecting the kidneys
Healthy kidneys filter waste and water from the blood to create urine. If kidneys are damaged, they can’t work correctly. Over time, this can lead to kidney disease.
Children can be born with a kidney condition or develop one as they age.
Experience with a wide range of conditions
Some kidney conditions, such as kidney stones and urinary tract infections, are common and easily treatable. Others are rare or more complex to treat.
UW Health Kids kidney specialists evaluate and treat a wide range of conditions, including:
Acute kidney failure (renal failure)
Bone problems related to kidney disorders
Calcium disorders and renal bone disease
Congenital kidney abnormalities
Cystic kidney disease
High blood pressure (hypertension)
Inflammatory conditions of the kidney
Pediatric metabolic syndrome
Urinary tract infection (UTI)
