More About the UW Health Advanced Hypertension Program

Our services are provided by a multidisciplinary team of hypertension physician-experts that includes cardiologists, preventive cardiologists, and nephrologists, with endocrinology and vascular surgery consultants.

 

Our services are delivered in collaboration with a team of nurses, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and a psychologist that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension and the prevention of heart, blood vessel, and kidney disease.
