Dr. Putnam Records Patient Education PSA to Run January 2022 on KJHM-FM in Denver

Denver, January 7, 2022 / Dr. Samuel Putnam is the managing physician at Modern Vascular in Denver (Thornton, CO). Dr. Putnam went on KJHM-FM in Denver to record an educational PSA about peripheral artery disease. People that have PAD could be asymptomatic, but when they do develop symptoms it can start as mild pain, usually in the back of the calf, when walking. It can progress to pain at rest. In the worst cases, they can develop ulcers on their legs, feet, or toes. Modern Vascular is trying to prevent severe pain for people with PAD, as well as amputations.
