Individualized care for your child
The End-Stage Renal Program at Boston Children's Hospital consists of an expert team of physicians, surgeons, nurses, nutritionists and social workers who assist children with chronic renal failure.
We work with families to plan individualized therapy for each child.
Our goal is to preserve each patient's growth and development by integrating schooling and providing guidance on behavioral and financial issues. We also assist in arranging transport and home help support, as well as visiting nursing services.
