Silver Cross Hospital and Heart Care Centers of Illinois are proud to announce that we are the first hospital and only cardiology practice in Illinois to currently offer renal denervation therapy for the treatment of uncontrolled hypertension or high blood pressure! This cutting-edge procedure has been shown to potentially help control blood pressure with less need for additional medications.

High blood pressure

About Uncontrolled High Blood Pressure.

Over time, uncontrolled hypertension damages the arteries, contributing to their stiffening. As the arteries become narrower and less flexible, the heart has to work harder to move blood through the body. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure and other heart conditions; cause damage to your kidneys, memory and vision; and contribute to erectile dysfunction.
