Urology and Nephrology Combined Clinic
For patients who need care from experts in both urology and nephrology, our combined clinic offers many advantages. In addition to saving families time by having a single appointment, our Urology and Nephrology Combined Clinic improves care by enabling two doctors to discuss your child’s care with you at the same time. The centralized point of care also helps our physician-scientists enroll children in research projects aimed at understanding pediatric diseases and improving patient care.
Our combined clinic serves patients with many types of conditions related to the urinary system and kidneys, including:
- Urinary tract obstruction
- Posterior urethral valve
- Severe vesicoureteral reflux
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
- Solitary kidney
- Other urinary tract issues causing problems with the kidney

Can a Kidney Failure Risk Equation Validated in Adults Predict Kidney Failure in Children?
Obstructive uropathy is a frequent cause of kidney injury in children, and it is estimated to cause approximately one-sixth of pediatric kidney failure cases in North America. In a new study, researchers evaluate if the failure risk equation (KFRE) developed in adults could accurately predict the 5-year risk of kidney failure in children.
