When it comes to Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), evidence based medicine shows the importance of identifying the disease in the early stages. This consists of non-healing foot or leg sores, early signs of gangrene (blackened toes), pain when walking that subsides at res and signs of muscle atrophy or discoloration of the lower extremities.
At South Mountain Surgery Center, using innovative 3-D intravascular ultrasound (IRUS) during the procedure, our interventional physicians measure the narrowing of the artery, determine the kind of plaque that is present, and then safely remove the buildup before placing stents to re-vascularize the area(s) when necessary.
We also treat other cascular conditions such as Varicose and Spider Veins. Click the button below to contact us and learn more about how we can help you.
