Christ Hospital Tests Surgical Treatment for High Blood Pressure
The Christ Hospital says it's the first medical center in the Cincinnati region to test a new surgical treatment for high blood pressure. The hospital is also recruiting new patients to take part in the surgical trial. Dr. Eugene Chung is Director of Outcomes at The Christ Hospital's Heart and Vascular Center. He tells WNKU's Steve Hirschberg that high blood pressure is an almost universal problem, especially as we age. He says, in many patients, it's very difficult to control.
