blood pressure treatment at The Christ Hospital Health Network
At The Christ Hospital Health Network Resistant Hypertension Clinic, our blood pressure experts are leading the way with new treatment options for resistant hypertension.
A progressive approach to blood pressure management.
Advanced treatment options for resistant hypertension
High blood pressure is often controlled with medications. However, millions of Americans are at risk for cardiovascular disease, stroke or heart attack due to uncontrolled blood pressure, despite medical treatment.
The Christ Hospital is pioneering new, minimally invasive techniques for patients whose hypertension is not well controlled by multi-drug therapy.
Hyperactivity of the nerves surrounding the blood vessels that lead to the kidneys has been shown to be a major factor in hypertension.
We offer a treatment that may reduce high blood pressure using a procedure called renal denervation. This one-time, minimally invasive procedure applies therapy to the tissue surrounding the renal arteries in an effort to disrupt the hyperactivity of these nerves and reduce high blood pressure.
The Christ Hospital is the only hospital in the region evaluating a new device to help lower high blood pressure.
This procedure is a simple, passive implant that is designed to reduce blood pressure while preserving the body's natural ability to control blood pressure. The minimally invasive MobiusHD barostenting procedure could be life changing for patients whose hypertension is not effectively controlled by multi-drug therapy.
If you have a systolic blood pressure of 160 mmHg or greater, and are taking three or more prescription antihypertensives medicines, including a diuretic, you may benefit from this treatment.
