PAD is a chronic circulatory condition that affects over 20 million Americans and is more common than Alzheimer’s, Stroke, and most forms of cancer. Of those diagnosed with PAD, it is estimated that 200,000 of them – disproportionately from minority communities – will suffer avoidable amputations every year. Untreated PAD can be dangerous because it can lead to painful symptoms or loss of a leg, and patients with PAD have an increased risk of coronary artery disease, stroke , and heart attack.
By increasing PAD awareness, we can improve access to PAD screening and treatments which is shown to improve quality of life, reduce care costs, and prevent limb loss. For more information or to schedule an online consultation, contact www.vascularcenters.com or call 888-773-2193.
