Overview

 

Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Nephrology and Hypertension. Established in the 1970’s, we provide up to date, compassionate, comprehensive, state of the art  care to  infants, children and teenagers with disorders of the urinary tract,  from birth until age 21 years, and also counsel mothers when a kidney problem is discovered during pregnancy. Because kidney disease is often associated with elevated blood pressure, we also specialize in the evaluation and treatment of hypertension. The chief of the division has been listed as “Best Doctors” in New Jersey for many years. As part of our mission, the division plays an active role in undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education programs and conducts research activities.
