PH Done Right

The Pulmonary Hypertension Center at INTEGRIS Baptist is designed to provide patients comprehensive evaluation and treatment of pulmonary hypertension, a rare and complex heart-lung condition. Pulmonary hypertension sometimes has no known cause, what we refer to as "idiopathic." Many times however, other health conditions contribute to the development of pulmonary hypertension, including autoimmune conditions like scleroderma, lupus and mixed connective tissue disease.

Primary lung conditions including pulmonary embolism, interstitial lung disease, pulmonary fibrosis, or COPD (‘emphysema’) and heart conditions including congenital heart disease, atrial septal defect, congestive heart failure and valve problems can also lead to pulmonary hypertension. Regardless of cause, most of our patients have been suffering from debilitating symptoms for months and often years before arriving at our center.

When you or your family members are evaluated here, you should expect an experience that reflects our mission to provide a comprehensive, team-based, and patient-centered approach that leads to timely restored health:

  • Listening – we first learn your signs and symptoms as well as the evaluation and/or treatment you have had to date
  • Finding- we will then need to order additional tests and request medical records to accurately diagnose your condition
  • Healing- after a confident diagnosis is made, we construct a detailed, individualized treatment plan to start the process of helping you feel better and improving your health
  • Communicating- we feel this is the most important aspect of a successful relationship, and provide you direct access to our nurses and provider team

We evaluate hundreds of new patients annually for known or suspected pulmonary hypertension. We offer all available treatments for pulmonary hypertension as well as participation in a variety of national and international pulmonary hypertension clinical research trials.
