Paediatric Nephrology

At the Paediatric Nephrology Department, we are specialised in studying and treating children with kidney disease to fulfil their physical, psychological, emotional and social development. The highly sophisticated level of technology at our practice, in conjunction with medical advances, means more and more children survive acute or chronic kidney disease.

The National Health System has designated the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital as a reference centre CSUR in Extrophy-epispadia complex (bladder extrophy, epispadias, and sewer extrophy), severe childhood kidney disease and dialysis treatment, pediatric kidney transplantation, complex glomerular disease, and congenital metabolic diseases. In addition, the European Commission has designated ERN in Renal Pathology, Neuromuscular Diseases and Renal Diseases and the Catalan Health Service has designated XUEC in Immune Diseases: area of ​​primary immunodeficiencies in the same service.
