Peripheral Vascular Procedures

Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral artery disease is a buildup of fatty deposits or plaque in the legs. Patients experience sore or cramping legs when walking or climbing the stairs and, in advanced cases, gangrene in the legs and feet. Complications associated with peripheral artery disease include heart attack, poor wound healing, severe pain in the affected leg, stroke and amputation.

Our team of cardiologists use a full range of options for treating peripheral artery disease with the goal of improving blood flow to the affected area, including medication, balloon angioplasty to open the arteries in the extremities, stents to expand the size of the arteries, and vascular surgery using blood vessels from other parts of the body or synthetic vessels to create a bypass to increase blood flow to the extremities.
