Meet the Hypertension Clinic Team

The Hypertension Clinic at Brenner Children’s is dedicated to providing cutting-edge, comprehensive and patient-oriented care to children, adolescents and young adults who have hypertension and hypertensive conditions. The Hypertension Clinic is the region’s only clinic specializing in the care of patients with hypertension and hypertensive conditions. Our diverse team of experts includes kidney doctors (nephrologists), nurses, nutritionists and social workers who work together with patients, families, primary care providers and specialists to provide comprehensive and individualized care.

We work with specialists in pediatric cardiology, pediatric radiology, sleep medicine, pediatric ophthalmology and pediatric vascular surgery to ensure the very best care.

We work closely with our Brenner FIT colleagues to care for our patients who also have obesity, fatty liver disease and high cholesterol.  

Nephrologists

South Andrew Michael
Andrew M. South, MD, MS, is the director of the Hypertension Clinic at Brenner Children’s Hospital.
I'm interested in how hypertension develops, how it affects our bodies (like the brain, heart and kidneys), how best to treat hypertension and how we can best help our patients, including preventing hypertension and cardiovascular (heart) disease as our patients become adults. I’m also interested in how health disparities (including food insecurity) and our lifestyle affect hypertension, including what we eat, our level of physical activity and the role obesity plays.
