Nephrology

Nephrology & Hypertension

We provide primary and consultative care and treatment to children and adolescents with all forms of kidney disease, administered by a team of renal specialists from the joint nephrology/urology clinic. In addition, our Transplant Center has extensive experience with pediatric kidney transplantation, offering living-related and deceased donor renal transplantation services.

We see children and adolescent patients on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus and at Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation as well as in the community at the Richard E. Jacobs Health Center in Avon, the Medina Medical Office Building and the Twinsburg Family Health & Surgery Center.

The Judith M. Power Dialysis Unit

The Power Dialysis Unit offers exceptional kidney disease treatment for young patients with end-stage renal disease in a child-friendly setting. Opened in 2003, the unit is designed to serve children up to 21 years of age.

  • The unit is staffed by pediatric nephrologists, certified nephrology nurses, pediatric renal dietitians, renal social workers, recreational therapists, volunteers and education liaison personnel. We understand the unique medical, emotional and social needs of children.
  • The unit also serves as a training center for parents so they may perform peritoneal dialysis at home, if appropriate.
  • It is the only dedicated pediatric dialysis unit in Northeastern Ohio affiliated with a full-service transplant center.
