Lisa M. Satlin, MD is the Herbert H. Lehman Professor of Pediatrics and Chair of the Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) and Pediatrician-in-Chief of the Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital. She received her medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and completed a residency in Pediatrics at the Babies Hospital of Columbia University and a Pediatric Nephrology Fellowship at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. At the ISMMS, as Chief of the Division of Pediatric Nephrology (1997-2010), Dr. Satlin built an internationally respected academic division, which has attracted both physician and research trainees interested in clinical nephrology and basic/clinical/translational research related to developmental nephrology. She runs an active NIH-funded laboratory, supported in part to serve as a national “Single Tubule Physiology Core” as part of an O’Brien Renal Research Center, focused on defining the mechanisms leading to the acquisition, maintenance and regulation of ion transport in the renal collecting duct, the nephron segment responsible in the adult kidney for the final regulation of salt and water homeostasis. Her research accomplishments have been recognized by her election to membership in the Society for Pediatric Research, the American Pediatric Society, and the Association of American Physicians.

Dr. Satlin has served as President of the American Society of Pediatric Nephrology and Councilor of the International Pediatric Nephrology Association. She completed two terms as Associate Editor of the American Journal of Physiology: Renal Physiology, and has participated in many study sections and grant-review groups for the NIH and the American Heart Association.

Physicians who provide services at hospitals and facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System might not participate in the same health plans as those Mount Sinai hospitals and facilities (even if the physicians are employed or contracted by those hospitals or facilities).

Information regarding insurance participation and billing by this physician may be found on this page, and can also be obtained by contacting this provider directly. Because physicians insurance participation can change, the insurance information on this page may not always be up-to-date. Please contact this physician directly to obtain the most up-to-date insurance information.
