Did you know 200,000 avoidable amputations are performed each year in the United States? Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a progressive disorder that can get worse if left untreated.

This September, we are raising awareness about PAD so people are aware of the warning signs and symptoms. If you are experiencing leg pain, cramps in the buttocks, thigh, or calves, difficulty climbing stairs, walking long distances, skin discoloration, poor toenail or hair growth on the legs, slow or non-healing wounds, or leg fatigue and tiredness, it’s important to schedule an appointment with a vascular specialist today.
