Hypertension in Cumming, GA

Known as the silent killer, hypertension or high blood pressure is usually diagnosed as an incidental finding as most people don’t know that they have it. The blood pressure in this medical condition remains consistently high. This means that the force of the blood is high, which can damage the blood vessels and arteries over time.

Your pre-op appointment will be scheduled within 30 days before a major surgery. The medical team will review our medical history and take the necessary tests. We ensure you are prepped for your upcoming operation.

If high blood pressure is not diagnosed and treated promptly, it can lead to serious health complications:

  • Heart attack or stroke
  • Loss of vision
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney failure or disease
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Angina
  • Microvascular disease
  • Peripheral artery disease

Fortunately, at Windermere Medical Group, we can diagnose and treat hypertension before it becomes a serious problem. We thoroughly evaluate patients for underlying causes of hypertension and undertake a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s future risk of developing complications.

The doctors will explain the surgery process to you and other details you might need to know. You might be given medications to take before the surgery. The team will also answer any of your questions, including:

  • What is the process of the surgery? And how long would it take?
  • Would I need anesthesia? If yes, what kind?
  • Do I need to bring anything to the hospital?
  • Could there be any complications? Can I do anything to avoid them?
  • What do I eat or drink before the surgery?

You would have to arrive at the hospital at least two hours before the surgery time.

Risk Factors for Hypertension

One in three adults has hypertension, but most of them are unaware. Though it is difficult to find the exact cause of high blood pressure, some risk factors are in your control, and some are not.

  • Family history
  • Certain medical conditions such as diabetes

Many poor lifestyle choices (which are in your control) can also put you at a high risk of suffering from hypertension. These include:

  • Being obese
  • Chewing tobacco
  • Smoking
  • Too much alcohol

  • Sedentary life or job
  • Mental stress
