About Karen M. Redwine


Karen Redwine, MD, MPH cares for children with a wide range of kidney disorders including hypertension, chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal failure, glomerulonephritis, nephrotic syndrome, hematuria, proteinuria, and congenital renal anomalies (renal agenesis, multi-cystic dysplastic kidney, CAKUT, etc.). She also supports patients needing renal biopsy, dialysis, and pre- and post- renal transplant care. Dr. Redwine offers a medical home for these medically complex patients, collaborating with their broader care team (other specialists, primary care, nutrition, etc.) to ensure comprehensive, coordinated patient care. She has special interest in and extensive experience with pediatric hypertension – both primary hypertension (frequently related to diet, exercise, or obesity) and secondary hypertension (caused by underlying kidney disease, genetic disorders, or another triggering illness).

Dr. Redwine enjoys building relationships with children and their families, often caring for patients over many years. She recognizes the importance of education and empowering her patients to manage a life-long condition to achieve their best quality of life. She is passionate about healthy nutrition and physical activity habits, as well as helping children learn to live their lives, rather than live their disease.  

Dr. Redwine began her career in medical academia as a tenured, associate professor in the pediatrics department at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. During this time, she was dedicated to mentoring and advising her students and conducting pediatric hypertension research. Her research focused on the epidemiology of pediatric hypertension and optimizing the management of children with obesity-related hypertension. Dr. Redwine co-edited a book on pediatric hypertension, wrote multiple peer-reviewed publications and served as principal investigator on many clinical trials. While she found this work fulfilling, she discovered her true passion in direct patient care and left Arkansas to join St. Luke's Children's in 2016.

Dr. Redwine is a member and former chair of the International Pediatric Hypertension Association. She is also a member of the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology, American Society of Nephrology, and the American Society of Hypertension.

In her free time, Dr. Redwine enjoys singing with her church choir, baking, sewing, and spending time with her family (three generations under one roof!).
