About Dr Walter Van der Merwe

I am a New Zealand-trained nephrologist and I have a particular interest in hypertension (high blood pressure). 90% of my private practice is devoted to sorting out patients with difficult blood pressure. 26% of the adult population has hypertension and about 10% of those have difficult to treat or resistant blood pressure, and are at high risk of premature cardiovascular events. I have a high success rate in achieving good outcomes for these individuals. No one else in the country is offering a similar service. I also see and treat patients with all forms of acute and chronic kidney disease.
