Hypertension Clinic

The monthly Pediatric Hypertension Clinic provides evidence-based comprehensive care to children with hypertension from infancy until 18 years. It aims at early detection (including performing ambulatory blood pressure monitoring) and treatment of hypertension to reduce the risk of future complications associated with high blood pressure. Referrals from family physicians, general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists are encouraged.

For more information, visit the Nephrology page for patients and families.
