Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic

Overview

Compassionate Care at Aurora’s Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is high blood pressure in the arteries in your lungs. This condition isn’t common, but for those who have it, PH can harm your health and interfere with your daily activities. It puts tremendous pressure on your heart and makes it difficult to breathe freely.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension, we can help. Aurora Health Care doctors have been successfully treating PH for more than 25 years. In fact, the Pulmonary Hypertension Association has accredited us as a pulmonary hypertension center of excellence.

World-Class Care

Expert Treatment for Pulmonary Hypertension

Accurately diagnosing pulmonary hypertension is often complex. Symptoms can point to a wide range of other disorders. It’s important to receive the right diagnosis so that you can find appropriate care and get back to a healthy, happy life.

At our clinic, a doctor who specializes in pulmonary hypertension will evaluate you. Our experienced team will help you understand what your diagnosis means, explain your options and recommend lifestyle changes to help you feel better.
