Inside Children’s Hospital of Michigan: Nephrology and Urology

Parents want only the best for their kids. Children’s Hospital of Michigan knows the bar is set pretty high. That’s why the specialists there strive to deliver the quality of care that you expect – and your child deserves.

The entire hospital (not just one pediatric wing) is dedicated to children and the specific ailments they may face. The pediatric nephrology and urology departments are just two of the many standout programs at Children’s.

The nephrology department is the largest and the most experienced program in Michigan, with eight attending physicians. For pediatric urological care, Children’s happens to be the best in the state – and the U.S. News and World Report ranked Children’s Hospital’s nephrology and urology departments among the best in the nation.

“We see some routine patients, but we also see very complex patients,” Dr. Tej Mattoo, chief of pediatric nephrology and hypertension says of the nephrology team, explaining, “It’s not uncommon for us to diagnose some conditions that may be difficult to diagnose elsewhere, and that’s because of the expertise we have in our program.”

Plus, with a top-notch Pediatric Dialysis Center, a kidney transplant program, a Bowel and Urinary Disorders Clinic, a Behavioral Modification Voiding Program and many more unique and innovative services and technologies, kids with mild to severe disorders are in excellent hands.

And Children’s knows these treatments aren’t easy for parents, either. That’s why there are support services in place especially for families, such as the Kidney Talks program, which brings information about common kidney issues straight to families and the public.
