MD Insider: Hypertension

High blood pressure is a major risk factor for stroke, heart and kidney failure, dementia and heart attacks. And sadly, approximately two-thirds of all patients with high blood pressure are not adequately treated – that’s a serious issue when so much is at risk.

At The Christ Hospital Health Network Resistant Hypertension Clinic, our multidisciplinary team strives to appropriately identify, educate and control high blood pressure (hypertension) in individuals with resistant hypertension. This is accomplished through a holistic, comprehensive and multi-faceted approach designed to improve each patient's quality of life.

Patients at our resistant hypertension clinic have access to a team of the most qualified cardiology and nephrology specialists, designated as Specialists in Clinical Hypertension by the American Society of Hypertension (ASH). Our program is one of the few hypertension centers in the nation with this distinction.
