Jyothsna Gattineni, M.D., is the Division Director of Pediatric Nephrology at Children’s Health and an Associate Professor at UT Southwestern. 

Dr. Gattineni has a wide variety of clinical and research interests, including chronic kidney disease, hemolytic uremic syndrome, dialysis and transplantation. She also collaborates with urologists and other specialists at the Comprehensive Stone Center at Children’s Health.  

Dr. Gattineni believes in going the extra mile to meet her patients' needs — whether that means taking additional time to explain their condition or finding ways around socioeconomic barriers that limit access to treatment. 

As a researcher, Dr. Gattineni aims to better understand kidney disease and open the door to new treatments. She leads a lab in our pediatric nephrology research program, which focuses on understanding the Fibroblast Growth Factor 23 (FGF23) hormone and how it affects patients with chronic kidney disease. 

After earning her medical degree from Stanley Medical College and Hospital in Chennai, India, Dr. Gattineni completed residencies in England and at Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi. She then trained in pediatric nephrology at UT Southwestern Medical Center.
