Living with Peripheral Arterial Disease and its symptoms can be painful, uncomfortable and in its most severe form can lead to amputation. Luckily there are treatment options available to get you back to your daily routine, symptom free.
If your primary care physician suspects you have PAD, you will be diagnosed using one of three common non-invasive diagnostics tools: Ankle Brachial Index, Pulse Volume Recording, or Ultrasound. These tests will help detect the blood flow to the legs as well as determine the severity of the blockage. Once you have been diagnosed with PAD, your medical team will explain the differences between the minimally-invasive procedure options; Angioplasty, Atherectomy, and Stenting, as well as which may be the best option for you.
