What Sets Us Apart

Specialists at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital of New York at NYU Langone work with families to prevent, diagnose, and treat high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, in children. Our specialists also prevent health concerns that may occur if hypertension isn’t managed effectively.

In young children, hypertension is usually caused by another medical condition, especially one that affects the kidney, heart, or hormone system. Obesity is a leading cause of hypertension in older children and adolescents.
