Our PAD screening and treatment programs focus on identifying and caring for PAD patients early. We actively seek to improve the quality of life and reduce the potential health risks for our patients through PAD testing and early intervention.
What is PAD?
Peripheral Arterial Disease – also known as PAD – is a common, yet serious, disease. PAD occurs when extra cholesterol and other fats circulating in the blood collect in the walls of the arteries that supply blood to your limbs. This build-up – called plaque – narrows your arteries, often reducing or blocking the flow of blood. PAD is most commonly seen in the legs, but can also be present in the arteries that carry blood from your heart to your head, arms, kidneys, and stomach.
