Peripheral Vascular Disease is caused by atherosclerosis in the inner walls of arteries. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a particularly dangerous form of peripheral vascular disease (PVD), because patients often dismiss the symptoms or present no symptoms at all.
• Cramping, fatigue, heaviness, pain or discomfort in the legs or buttocks during and following physical activity
• Foot wounds that won’t heal or heal very slowly
• Noticeable decrease in the temperature of the lower leg or foot
With only about one-quarter of PAD patients undergoing treatment, this disease is largely under-diagnosed and under-treated.
NMMC cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, in collaboration with general and vascular surgeons and radiologists, provide the latest treatment options for patients with PAD. Our multidisciplinary approach brings together health care professionals from several related specialties to coordinate patients’ care. This program integrates the diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and management of patients with vascular disease; in turn, the program provides these patients the opportunity to receive the most comprehensive and efficient care.
Please ask your primary care physician about treatment options or contact us at 1-888-HEART14 or (662) 377-PD10 (7310).
