Providing a genetic evaluation for patients with a personal or family history suggestive of hereditary renal disease. Establishing a diagnosis for a variety of hereditary renal conditions including focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS), nephritic/nephrotic syndrome, Alport syndrome, cystic kidney diseases (including polycystic kidney disease), nephronophthisis, tubulointerstitial disease, congenital anomalies of kidney and urinary tract (CAKUT), nephrocalcinosis, nephrolithiasis (kidney stones), renal electrolyte imbalances (including Bartter syndrome), C3 glomerulopathy (C3G), and complement-mediated thrombotic microangiopathy (also known as atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, aHUS)
