We developed the Norton Children’s Nephrology Pediatric Hypertension Program to improve care for children and adolescents with elevated blood pressure and hypertension. The program uses ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, a reliable and safe study for evaluation and management of pediatric hypertension as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Experienced physicians who serve on the University of Louisville School of Medicine faculty are also passing along their expertise to the next generation of providers and conducting valuable clinical research that brings innovative treatments to their patients.
Norton Children’s continues to bring quality, compassionate pediatric care to children and families in Louisville, Southern Indiana and beyond.
