Specialist Services at CardioCare
Welcome to Cardiocare Hospital’s patient information webpage on peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a condition in which the arteries that carry blood to your legs and feet become narrowed or blocked, leading to reduced blood flow and potentially serious complications. Our team is here to provide you with the best medical care and support possible.
Symptoms of PAD may include pain or cramping in the legs or feet, especially during activity or exercise. This pain may go away with rest and return when you resume activity. In more severe cases, you may experience numbness or tingling in the legs or feet, coldness or weakness in the affected limb, or slow-healing wounds or sores.
At Cardiocare Hospital, we offer a range of medical and interventional options for managing PAD. Our experienced team of vascular specialists will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan that meets your unique needs.
Medical management of PAD may involve medications to improve blood flow, reduce blood pressure or cholesterol levels, or prevent blood clots. Exercise and lifestyle modifications, such as smoking cessation and healthy eating habits, can also be beneficial.
In some cases, interventional procedures may be necessary to treat PAD. This may involve minimally invasive procedures such as angioplasty or stenting to open blocked or narrowed arteries, or more complex surgical procedures to bypass or remove blockages. Our state-of-the-art facilities and skilled team of vascular surgeons ensure that you receive the highest quality care possible.
It is important to be aware of the signs and symptoms of PAD and to seek medical attention if you experience any of the following:
- Pain or cramping in the legs or feet that does not go away with rest
- Sores or wounds on the legs or feet that do not heal or heal slowly
- A noticeable decrease in the temperature of the affected limb
- A change in skin color or texture on the affected limb
- Numbness or tingling in the legs or feet
- Weakness or fatigue in the affected limb
If you have been diagnosed with PAD, our team at Cardiocare Hospital is here to provide you with the best possible care and support. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
