The Division of Pediatric Nephrology provides inpatient and outpatient services for children with kidney disease. We diagnose and treat kids with a range of kidney problems like urinary tract infections, structural abnormalities, cystic kidney disease and renal failure.

Our goal is to make your child as comfortable as possible while he or she is in our care. Whether our skilled doctors are conducting diagnostic tests, administering dialysis or coordinating renal transplantation, we work hard to help your child feel at ease.

Pediatric Nephrology is staffed with three board certified pediatric nephrologists, as well as exceptional nursing support. Our team is lead by Lawrence S. Milner, MD who has consistently been rated by Boston Magazine as a “Top Doctor” in the city. Dr. Milner’s dedication to patients and their families truly shines throughout the division.
