Pediatric Nephrology Institute

The Pediatric Nephrology Institute provides comprehensive care to children with a wide range of kidney and urinary tract disorders, from birth to adolescence. Treatment of children with kidney diseases involves multiple body systems, which are addressed by the unit's multi-disciplinary team, supported by the most advanced technologies in the field.

The Institute provides comprehensive care for children hospitalized with acute and chronic kidney diseases, including premature and newborn infants with kidney disorders, children with genetic and metabolic diseases of the kidney, and children with congenital abnormalities of the urinary tract. In addition, we provide diagnostic kidney biopsies for children from all age groups.

Our Institute provides ambulatory services that include consulting, treatment, and follow-up of children with various kidney disorders. In addition, we provide pediatric nephrology consulting services to hospitals in northern and central Israel.

Our outpatient service operates a specialized clinic for children in varying degrees of kidney failure. In addition, we operate a pediatric dialysis unit, offering a wide range of dialysis services (hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, hemofiltration) for children with both acute and terminal kidney failure.

Our multi-disciplinary pediatric kidney transplantation program ensures optimal medical care for children with terminal kidney failure, before, during and after kidney transplantation. Kidney transplant operations are performed by our experienced pediatric transplant surgical team. We provide long-term follow up for children undergoing kidney transplantation, until young adulthood.

Our team's activities also include extensive academic teaching and a wide range of clinical and basic research projects. Our research focus is to understand the genetic basis of hereditary kidney diseases of unknown cause.
