Pediatric Nephrology services at California Pacific Medical Center are staffed by physicians from Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. These physicians provide diagnosis and treatment for children with kidney (renal) and urinary tract disease at CPMC in San Francisco. Conditions include:
- Acute and chronic renal failure

Cystinosis is when cystine (a common protein-building compound) accumulates within specific cellular bodies of the kidney, known as lysosomes. Oxalosis is a buildup of a substance called oxalate in the blood after kidney failure.
