Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a common condition of the circulatory system that is most commonly caused by atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the buildup of fatty deposits on the arterial wall that restricts blood flow. PAD most often presents in the legs and feet. It can cause wounds to take much longer to heal, which could lead to infection, which could lead to amputation.
There are a total of 5 clinics in Arizona. Modern Vascular of Glendale, Arizona is dedicated to reducing the number of unnecessary amputations by increasing awareness of PAD and encouraging screening during the early stages. Early detection of peripheral artery disease is the best way to prevent amputation.
