Why Modern Vascular?
The Modern Vascular Difference
Modern Vascular is the only nationwide leader with state-of-the-art technology and expertise to restore blood flow to lower limb extremities affected by Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), down to the toe. Left untreated, PAD can result in worsening symptoms and eventually even limb loss (amputation). However, up to 90% of amputations are preventable.
Modern Vascular’s Approach to Treating Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
Modern Vascular is made up of highly specialized Interventional Radiologists, Interventional Cardiologists and Vascular Surgeons dedicated to long term care of patients with Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD). Our mission is to eliminate unnecessary amputations using patient education, behavior modification, at-home medical management and minimally-invasive outpatient procedures.
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is the narrowing of peripheral arteries due to atherosclerosis (plaque buildup on arterial walls) decreasing blood flow to legs, feet, and toes. Symptoms of PAD include resting leg pain, pain while walking and foot wounds that don’t heal. Left untreated, PAD complications include critical limb ischemia, gangrene, and amputation.
