Kidney transport - Almost all the children who have end-stage kidney disease receive transplants eventually.

Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy - In this treatment, the dialysis is allowed to happen slowly over a duration of 24 hours.

My son has a kidney disorder. Can he play sports?

Your child’s ability to participate in physical activities will depend on their condition and the treatment procedure they are going through. In some cases, they will be able to resume back to their normal daily routine in no time. In other cases, they might have to take a break from physical activities.

What are some common diagnosis methods for kidney diseases?

For people suffering from life-threatening nephrology conditions, it is very important to develop an effective treatment plan. The first step in implementing the treatment plan is getting a speedy and accurate diagnosis. There are several testing and evaluation methods that can help diagnose any kidney problem and the cause behind it. There is also an option for prenatal evaluation for a family whose unborn child is diagnosed with kidney disease. The most common diagnostic methods include:

Blood tests
MRI of the urinary system
CT scan of the urinary system

What are some of the latest technology and treatment options for children with renal issues?

The latest treatment approaches for children with renal issues are the following:

3D printing - Radiologists can use this for creating 3D models of complicated anatomy from MRI and CT scans. This can help the nephrologists in planning their approach.
Robot-assisted and minimally invasive surgery

Fertility Preservation Program for children - This program is for a child suffering from any condition that can affect their fertility in the future.

Proton Beam therapy - It is an option for kids suffering from some form of cancer. Conventional radiation therapy is more harmful to children as their organs are still in development.

Fetal surgery - This surgical option is for fetuses with lower urinary tract obstruction (LUTO) and spina bifida.
