The Pediatric Nephrology Institute at Shaare Zedek Medical Center treats children with congenital and acquired kidney problems from infancy until adulthood. Many resources are devoted to caring for children in renal failure that require dialysis or kidney transplant. 

The institute is divided into three main units: 
1.    Pediatric Hemodialysis Unit. Children requiring dialysis come to the hospital 3-4 times a week for treatment. This is the largest pediatric dialysis unit in Israel.
2.    Peritoneal Dialysis Service. The dialysis is performed by the parents in the comfort of home, under the guidance and monitoring of the institute staff. 
3.    Pediatric Nephrology Day Hospital and Clinic. Here patients receive IV medication and undergo evaluations and monitoring by a multi-disciplinary team. The patients are mainly children after kidney transplant, children in renal failure and children with inflammatory kidney diseases. 

We emphasize the diagnosis of hereditary kidney diseases and diagnosis and treatment of children with hypertension and kidney stones. A treatment plan is created as needed only after a 24-hour long blood pressure monitoring. Children with congenital malformations of the kidneys and urinal tract are evaluated and monitored at the clinic.
