PAD Diagnosis and Treatment Near Sugar Land

In the US, about 8 – 12 million Americans suffer from peripheral artery disease (PAD), surpassing the total number of people living with any type of cancer. Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a common disease that causes a reduction of blood flow to the limbs because of the narrowing of arteries. Arteries typically narrow, or hard, because of a buildup of fatty deposits, known as plaque, in the arteries.

About 11.2% of Texans have diabetes. Diabetes prevalence has been on the rise since the 1990s, and the rate of new diagnoses has been increasing greater in Texas than on the national level. People that are living with diabetes are at a greater risk of developing atherosclerosis, the most common cause of PAD. Up to 25% of people with diabetes are at risk of losing part of their foot or leg because of peripheral artery disease.

Modern Vascular is dedicated to preventing unnecessary amputations with minimally invasive endovascular procedures. If a patient’s PAD symptoms get to the point where they are being recommended amputation, they should ask their doctor about alternative options and mention Modern Vascular. Patients that get a treatment for PAD at Modern Vascular are typically able go home on the same day as their procedure and notice improvement soon after.

In Texas, 1 in 5 adults report having arthritis, with a higher prevalence in women than in men. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, followed by rheumatoid arthritis.
