    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Hello, my 24 year old daughter has been in severe pain for over 3 years now and was just recently diagnosed with mobile kidney, hers in not only fallen but also moved in front of her liver. We are so far unsuccessful in finding a surgeon who is experienced with the nephropexy surgery necessary to fix the problem that has had any success. Can any one on here please point us toward a surgeon in the United States that can do it? (Especially the western United States, but at this point, we'll take any state) Thank you

    I'm sorry to hear about your daughters pain but having a diagnosis must be a relief!

    The WebMD Terms & Conditions prohibit members from recommending specific doctors but we do have a physician's directory here: WebMD Physician Finder

    You might want to check with a Kidney foundation - they might have a referral to a specific doctor who can help.

    Best of luck to you and your family! I hope you find a surgeon quickly!
