Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) & Our Specialists

Peripheral Artery Disease Leg Pain
First off, what is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)? 

Peripheral Artery Disease is a circulatory condition that typically affects arteries in the legs. It is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries serving your legs, stomach, arms, and head.

It is a pretty common disease, affecting over 3 million people in the United States each year. Risk factors that could increase your possibility of developing PAD include aging, high blood pressure & cholesterol, diabetes, and smoking.

Luckily, detecting PAD is easy and, in some cases, managing it can be easy as well. If your diagnosis is PAD, there are ways you can take control and change your lifestyle to keep your body healthy. In some cases, lifestyle change and medicine can be the answer to the successful management of PAD.

That being said, here at Ashchi Heart & Vascular Center, we have two doctors that specialize in PAD treatment and management.
