Patient Stories

"I’m glad I don’t live in the US, where they won’t have this procedure for another 2 or 3 years”

Merle was an athletic working mother and wife until her struggle with hypertension began to take its toll. Doctor after doctor prescribed a regiment of tablets that proved to be temporary fixes for her constant malaise. It was a renal denervation procedure that would eventually help Merle get her health back on track. Using a medical device available today only in the European Union, the procedure removes nerves in the kidney that lead to drug-resistant hypertension, allowing patients like Merle to get back to their active family-centred lives.
