Don’t Accept Amputation as an Answer
Certain medical conditions, including peripheral artery disease, venous disease, and diabetic foot ulcers, can lead to serious conditions that affect the limbs, particularly the legs and feet. When this happens, highly specialized medical and surgical care is often needed to avoid amputation and preserve quality of life.
At Vascular Health Centers our specialists use advanced techniques to restore healthy blood flow, promote healing, and prevent limb loss. This includes minimally invasive and surgical approaches to improve circulation and blood flow to the affected limb.
At Vascular Health Centers We Want You to Know…Amputation Isn’t the Only Way.
For people with peripheral arterial disease, our vascular surgeons use minimally invasive surgical techniques to remove blockages affecting blood flow to the limbs. This includes atherectomy to remove plaque that is blocking an artery, and balloon angioplasty and stenting to open a narrowed or clogged artery. Our vascular surgeons also perform arterial bypass to reroute blood around the blockage. In some cases, treatment involves a combination of these techniques.
When blood flow back to the heart is blocked due to chronic venous insufficiency or deep vein thrombosis, blood can start to pool in the legs. This can cause blood clots, pain, itching, and leg sores. Treatment may involve a combination of procedures to eliminate venous reflux caused by leaky valves that allow blood to flow in both directions, and procedures to open blocked deep veins. This includes heat-based therapies, such as laser and radiofrequency, as well as nonthermal therapies, such as special glue or foam, to treat problematic surface veins. It also includes treatments to remove blood clots, and balloon angioplasty and stenting to open blocked deep veins.
At Vascular Health Centers we provide comprehensive and advanced wound care. We treat all types of wounds, including burns, diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, surgical wounds, pressure ulcers, and wounds that just won’t seem to heal. We will create a personalized treatment plan designed to help your wounds heal faster.
PAD and Amputation: Know Your Risk solution
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce vital blood flow to your limbs. It often presents as severe leg pain, slow-healing wounds and cold lower limbs. Left untreated, PAD can lead to amputation.
If you or a loved one have been told that amputation is your only treatment option, it is vital that you get a second opinion from our experts. We have the expertise to save limbs with advanced, innovative techniques – even when other treatment options have failed.
