The predominance of diabetes has been increasing since the 90s. In Texas, the pace of new diagnoses is bigger than the rest of the U.S. In fact, more than 11% of Texans are living with diabetes. Diabetes causes a greater risk of getting atherosclerosis, which is the narrowing or hardening of the arteries due to plaque buildup. Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of peripheral artery disease. As many as 1 in 4 people that have diabetes are at risk of amputation due to their PAD.

Our physicians at Modern Vascular, and all of our staff, are dedicated to limb preservation. Amputation should only be considered when all other options have been explored and it is the best solution for the patient. Modern Vascular is able to diagnose peripheral artery disease early, which is crucial to positive outcomes and amputation prevention. If necessary, Modern Vascular physicians are able to perform minimally-invasive endovascular procedures, which can have fewer options and a faster recovery time. Patients that have had a procedure at Modern Vascular usually report an increase of feeling in their foot after the procedure and are back to normal activities within 24 – 48 hours.

Osteoarthritis Knee Pain Procedures

The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis. 20% of Texans report having arthritis. Osteoarthritis is caused by damage to the cartilage of the joints. The next most prevalent version of arthritis is rheumatoid arthritis, which is an inflammatory disorder. If knee pain cannot be managed by medications, exercise, physical therapy, or weight loss, then doctors may suggest knee replacement surgery. There is another option to reduce that pain without prolonged use of painkillers or costly surgery. Genicular Artery Embolization (GAE) is a minimally-invasive procedure that only involves light sedation and a needle puncture. It is able to reduce pain by preventing blood flow to the capillaries of the area of inflammation, which causes knee pain.
