When you seek treatment at Duke, you have access to nationally ranked lung and heart teams equipped with the latest methods for diagnosing, treating, and controlling all types of pulmonary hypertension. These include pulmonary hypertension that’s hereditary, related to other medical conditions (such as scleroderma, lupus, liver disease, heart disease, HIV, or chronic blood clots), or caused by past medication or drug use. Using pulmonary rehabilitation, medications, surgery, and the latest research, we aim to prevent your condition from getting worse and help you maintain as normal a lifestyle as possible.
