Our unit uses the most advanced hemodialysis modalities available today to remove waste from the body and to restore the body’s metabolism.  For those families that wish to perform dialysis at home peritoneal dialysis services are offered from infancy upwards.

Kidney Transplantation

As one of New Jersey’s few hospitals that provide kidney transplantation, Hackensack University Medical Center offers this life-sustaining treatment to children. Our nationally known transplant surgeon, is skilled in the special techniques necessary for pediatric kidney transplantation using both live donor kidneys and kidneys from deceased donors.

Kidney Biopsies
When a kidney biopsy is needed to make a diagnosis the expert Interventional Radiologists at the Hackensack University Medical Center perform the procedure under ultrasound guidance with the assistance of an Anesthesiologist.  Biopsies are performed in the morning.  The patients are usually discharged by the end of the day.

Nephrologists at the Center for Pediatric Kidney Diseases (Nephrology) work closely with pediatric urologists at the Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital to diagnose and treat urologic diseases associated with the kidneys and other organs of the urinary system.
