Peripheral Arterial Disease
REMARKABLE TREATMENT WILL SAVE YOU FROM AMPUTATION
PAD, Peripheral Arterial Disease, is a serious, yet treatable disease, characterized by a narrowing or blockage of the arteries that carry oxygenated blood to extremities such as the legs. Our Providers can perform a minimally invasive, same day, outpatient vascular procedure with just a tiny pin hole.
Early signs of PAD
Because many of the symptoms of PAD go undetected or mimic other conditions, it may be difficult to detect PAD until it begins to manifest. Avoiding many of the risk factors, like smoking and obesity by cessation and exercise will stop the disease before it starts.
