High Blood Pressure

hypertensionDr Robinson is an expert in the treatment of hypertension and is leading the development of a program of Renal Artery Denervation for the treatment of resistant hypertension. High blood pressure is felt to be the commonest cause of ill-health world-wide. It is estimated that 5 million people in the UK have undiagnosed hypertension. High blood pressure is not usually noticed and rarely causes any symptoms. This means that careful measurement of the blood pressure is the only way to make the diagnosis. High blood pressure, left untreated,renalartery increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and other vascular disease such as aneurysms. Hypertension is associated with being overweight, high salt intake, alcohol consumption and a family history. High blood pressure when detected, usually responds to medical therapy.
