Fangming Lin, MD, PhD
Chief, Division of Pediatric Nephrology

The Division of Pediatric Nephrology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital provides comprehensive care for a wide range of kidney diseases and urologic conditions in newborns, infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. Our specialists are experts in the treatment of:

  • Acute kidney injury
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • end-stage renal disease (kidney failure, which usually requires dialysis or a kidney transplant
  • Fluid and electrolyte abnormalities
  • Glomerulonephritis (a type of kidney disease in which the part of the kidneys that helps filter waste and fluids from the blood is damaged)
  • Hematuria (blood in the urine) and proteinuria (abnormal amounts of protein in the urine)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Kidney stones
  • Nephrotic syndrome
  • Urinary tract and kidney malformations
  • Kidney and bladder infections

Our pediatric nephrologists provide state-of-the-art continuous renal replacement therapy for critically ill children who require the most advanced care. Hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, and a comprehensive kidney transplant program are available for patients with end-stage renal disease.

The pediatric kidney transplantation program at NewYork-Presbyterian Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital offers pre- and post-transplant counseling for patients and family members, while leading-edge therapies are used to help reduce the side effects of anti-rejection drugs. For immediate access to the Comprehensive Pediatric Transplant Service, call 1-866-697-7755, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information.
