Get a second opinion
If your child is recently diagnosed with polycystic kidney disease, consider getting a second opinion from the experts at Children's Wisconsin.
A second opinion from our doctors can confirm the original diagnosis, giving you added confidence and peace of mind. In some cases, we may provide new information or a different perspective about the diagnosis. Even if treatment has already started, a second opinion can help guide any change in your child's care.
We welcome requests from anywhere in the U.S. and even from around the world. We can review your child's medical records and history and consult with your current doctor on diagnosis, care, and treatment options.
