We provide to you and your referring physician both inpatient and outpatient evaluation and management of the following types of conditions:
All of our physicians have received designation as Clinical Hypertensive specialists by the American Society of Hypertension. Our goal is to help prevent the onset of serious hypertension-related events such as stroke, heart attack, heart failure and kidney failure.
- Evaluation and management of High Blood Pressure (Hypertension) associated with resistance or side effects from drug therapy.
- Hypertension associated with multiple medical conditions requiring complex medical regimens.
- Hypertensive urgencies
- Secondary forms of hypertension:
- Including those associated with kidney diseases.
- Renovascular disorders (renal artery stenosis).
- Peripheral vascular disease.
- Endocrine (hormonal) disorders such as thyroid conditions.
- Adrenal hypertensive disorders including pheochromocytoma and primary hyperaldosteronism.
- Pregnancy-associated hypertension.
- "White Coat" hypertension.
- 24 hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure monitoring.
In many cases we will find it helpful to perform 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure and heart rate monitoring during normal day activities. Our group of physicians and nurses is among the most experienced in the country at this technique. Our results have been reported at national and international scientific conferences.
Disorders of the Kidney
- Acute Renal Failure.
- Chronic Kidney Disease - CKD.
- Proteinuria, Hematuria (protein or blood in urine) - CKD.
- Diabetic Kidney Disease.
- Ig A Nephropathy, FSGS, membranous glomerulopathy.
- Lupus Nephropathy.
- Vasculitis of the Kidneys.
- Polycystic Kidney Disease.
- Cancer-associated kidney disorders.
- Fluid disorders and Edema.
- Kidney stone evaluation and prevention.
- Electrolyte Disorders - Low or high levels of sodiumn potassium, calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
- Pregnancy associated kidney disorders.
This is an increasingly common condition of heart failure, pulmonary congestion, leg edema and kidney disease that requires close medical management and supervision in order to control fluid balance and thereby maintain good quality of life and prevent re-hospitalization.
Conditions caused by or associated with Chronic Kidney Disease
- Edema, heart failure.
- Electrolyte disorders including elevated potassium levels.
End Stage Kidney Disease (ESRD)
Our goal is to try to prevent the onset of end stage kidney disease. However, this is not always possible.
- Education and preparation for possible replacement therapies, including kidney transplantation and hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis.
- Chronic hemodialysis - Prescription and medical supervision.
- Chronic home Peritoneal Dialysis.
- Long term management post kidney transplantation.
