How can kidney recover if having nephrotic syndrome and fsgs?

Good afternoon, My daughter has nephrotic syndrome and fsgs. She has a specialist already who I believe is doing everything to her abilities. However, I thought that I might ask around to see if I can research on my own as well and look around. My daughter is on a cocktail of tacrolimus, celcept, solumedrol, rituxamab, prednisone, and various other drugs. I was wondering if anyone has found any other ways to make kidneys work with the body that are not so intrusive and harmful? I am trying to avoid dialysis and/or a transplant with my daughter.
