Where to go for treatment
Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)

Massachusetts General Hospital MGH, part of Partners Healthcare provides premier cardiac treatment and research.   Treatment for hypertension is a highly specialized, effective medical service at MGH.   MGH hypertension treatment emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach to blood pressure control Likewise, cardiac resynchronization therapy, sometimes with defibrillator therapy is an innovative therapeutic option at MGH.   Patients with heart failure who experience an abnormality in the pumping of the heartís ventricles can be helped with special treatment to synchronize the pumping.   Cardiac resynchronization therapy involves the placement of an implantable biventricular pacing device with three leads (right atrial, right ventricular and left ventricular) that synchronize ventricular contractions.   This greatly improves the pumping efficiency of the heart.   Clinical care of patients with cardiomyopathy and heart failure and management of patients who have or need a heart transplantation is way above the norm, very superior at MGH.
