The internationally renowned specialists in our unique, multidisciplinary program address the complex needs of patients suffering from pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension is high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs, which makes the heart work harder and can lead to heart failure. If it is diagnosed properly and without delay, we have very effective therapies that can slow the progression of your disease and possibly reverse some of the damage to the lungs and heart.
Our doctors have extensive experience dealing with pulmonary hypertension and we treat adults and children over the age of 12. We are fully committed to defeating pulmonary hypertension and providing world-class service to you, regardless of the cause of your disease, which may include pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), pulmonary venous hypertension and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, among other causes.
As a regional referral center known for providing the most comprehensive pulmonary hypertension care, we treat patients from throughout the Northeast, for our compassionate, patient- and family-centered care. We are a Center of Excellence according to the high standards of the national Pulmonary Hypertension Association, and we are the only accredited pulmonary hypertension program in the state.
