Pediatric Dialysis

pediatrics-dialysisThe Children’s Medical Center’s seven-bed dialysis unit provides both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis for children who require special treatment for chronic kidney problems or kidney transplants. Schoolteachers on staff in the Children’s Medical Center’s Cynthia Wells King School provide schooling for patients while they’re receiving dialysis. Social workers and dietitians specializing in pediatrics also provide services for these patients.

The CMC is just one of three CMS (Children’s Medical Services) sponsored comprehensive kidney failure centers in Florida.
