Comprehensive Approach to Treating High Blood Pressure
What Is Hypertension?
When the blood pressure in your arteries is too high, your heart works harder to pump blood through your body. High blood pressure rarely causes symptoms, but the damage it does to your arteries can be severe. Left untreated, the constant effort to pump blood harder and the damage to your blood vessels can lead to heart attack, kidney disease, and stroke.
Lower Your Blood Pressure, Reduce Your Risk of Complications
Our experienced cardiologists diagnose hypertension early and work to identify the underlying cause. We involve our kidney specialists when the kidneys overproduce a substance called renin that may cause blood pressure to rise. Our goal is always to identify the best approach to lower your blood pressure quickly and effectively while reducing your risk for the serious complications that can result.
