Pulmonary Hypertension Program
When you have high blood pressure in your lungs, it’s called pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Because symptoms can include fatigue and shortness of breath, this chronic, life-altering disease can make even simple tasks like climbing stairs difficult. While doctors and researchers continue to work on a cure, several treatment options are available that greatly improve the quality of our patients’ lives and delay the progression of the disease which can become life threatening. With the right care and coping strategies, many of our patients are able to lead full lives after diagnosis.
The Pulmonary Hypertension Center is now accredited by the Pulmonary Hypertension Association as a designated Tier 1 Pulmonary Hypertension Comprehensive Care Center. Learn more.
