Hypertension

Hypertension is a medical condition in which the blood pressure is chronically elevated. In the hypertension program, we specialize in the treatment of high blood pressure that is difficult to manage. We see patients who have hypertension in addition to other complex health conditions, including: early kidney disease, diabetes, high risk for heart attack or stroke, and previous occurrence of heart attack or stroke. We also specialize in the assessment and treatment of secondary hypertension, which is high blood pressure that has been linked to a specific cause – like a blocked renal artery, certain hormonal abnormalities, or tumors. After performing a diagnostic evaluation; including the evaluation of specific genetic and other markers that determine the progression and development of cardiovascular risk, our team develops and implements a blood pressure management strategy that is tailored to each patient.
