Pediatric Hypertension Clinic

Complete Care for High-Blood Pressure

Hypertension among children and adolescents is on the rise. Our pediatric hypertension clinic is staffed by a multidisciplinary team including registered nurses, a dietitian, pharmacist and social worker, dedicated to evaluating and treating children and teenagers with high-blood pressure.

Services We Offer at Our Clinic

  • Clinical evaluation and consultation
  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM)
  • Nutritional evaluation and counseling
  • Home blood pressure monitoring
  • Medication management
  • Risk factor testing for heart disease
  • Access to diagnostic testing

Children with high blood pressure have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease later in life which is why we work side-by-side with other University pediatric specialty programs – such as cardiology, endocrinology, sleep medicine, interventional radiology, vascular surgery and transplant – to provide every child with an individualized plan of care.
