The Nephrology Section at Brenner Children’s Hospital is one
of the leading nephrology departments in North Carolina; our clinical
specialists provide highly specialized care for infants and children under the
age of 21 with kidney-related conditions and disorders. We also offer our
pediatric patients a range of options for outpatient dialysis at our
free-standing dialysis center, located in Winston-Salem.
Brenner’s pediatric nephrologists specialize in providing
care for pediatric patients with all types of kidney-related conditions and
disorders, including acute and chronic kidney failure, hematuria, proteinuria,
fluid and electrolyte problems, hypertension, kidney infection, kidney stones,
kidney transplants and congenital kidney anomalies. We also work closely with
Brenner doctors in other specialties and our patients’ primary pediatricians to
incorporate a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and care.
Our pediatric nephrologists actively conduct clinical trials
and research studies, in collaboration with our colleagues at Brenner and at
other institutions throughout the United States, to search for new and better
ways to care for pediatric patients and improve their health outcomes.
Our program is led by Jen-Jar Lin, MD, PhD, a
board-certified specialist with training in both pediatrics and nephrology.
