Hua Sun
I love to take care of children with kidney disease by providing medical, dialysis, and transplant care. I have a special interest in rare kidney diseases, especially those with genetic defects or susceptibilities. With the advancement of scientific research and technology, I hope to help families connect with resources and conquer those 'incurable' kidney diseases. We work with so many subspecialties and families, to help our patients grow, lead a happy life, go to college, and create miracles.
