What is PAD – Peripheral Artery Disease?

PAD - Peripheral Artery Disease is the narrowing of peripheral arteries due to atherosclerosis (plaque buildup on arterial walls) decreasing blood flow to legs, feet, and toes.  Left untreated, PAD complications include critical limb ischemia, gangrene, and amputation.

Risk factors that greatly increase the likelihood of developing PAD - Peripheral Artery Disease are increasing age, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, and Diabetes.

“As a provider I use Modern Vascular for all my complex cases. The results have been outstanding! Not only that, I have had many patients come back to me raving about what a good experience they had with the Modern Vascular staff and physicians. They have helped to salvage many cases of potential amputations and I will continue to refer patients there as I trust Dr. Chun and his staff.”
