Local doctors work with a multidisciplinary team to plan your treatment based on the underlying causes of your pulmonary hypertension, a condition which can lead to heart failure. Our goal is to reduce the high blood pressure that can damage your heart and help you maintain as active a lifestyle as possible.
Our pulmonary specialists may customize a combination of medications to manage the high pressure within the arteries of your lungs, reducing the pumping load on your heart. We also offer a comprehensive patient-education program on the causes and treatment of your pulmonary hypertension, which may include lifestyle changes. We may also discuss lung transplantation if it is an appropriate option for you.
