Nephrology - 616.267.2400
As the largest pediatric nephrology and kidney transplant program in West Michigan, we provide a complete range of diagnosis and treatment for infants, children and adolescents with kidney and urinary tract disorders.
We see 3,800 children on an outpatient basis annually and treat up to 2,500 inpatients a year.
We have successfully managed 25 kidney transplant patients during the last three years and have been nationally recognized for our steroid-avoidance protocol for children with new transplants. In addition, our physicians offer consultations to pregnant women if an ultrasound reveals a kidney abnormality in their developing fetus.
We also offer a monthly outpatient clinic in Reed City.
