Eight-year-old Autumn is one of more than 630 children with kidney stones who were treated last year at Cincinnati Children’s – a three-fold increase compared to 10 years ago.
Last year, 34 children received a kidney transplant at Cincinnati Children’s – more than any other pediatric center in the country.
More than 4,000 children a year are admitted to Cincinnati Children’s to be treated for the most complex kidney and urinary tract disorders. An additional 5,000 children with kidney diseases are treated in our outpatient facilities. They receive care from a nephrology program that’s rated No. 2 in the country in the 2014-15 list of Best Children’s Hospitals, published by U.S. News & World Report.
“Our vision is to be the global leader in improving the health of children with kidney disease,” says Prasad Devarajan, MD, director, Nephrology and Hypertension at Cincinnati Children’s. “We have one of the busiest clinical programs in the country and we lead all pediatric hospitals in the US in terms of research funding and publications.”
“Our physicians come here to participate in clinical care, research, quality improvement and training the next generation of specialists,” Devarajan says. “The depth of this expertise is why many other physicians and families around the world turn to us for second and third opinions.”
