Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Through Diagnostic Testing of PAD in Our Comprehensive Facility

Peripheral arterial disease is a problem involving the blood vessels of your extremities, especially in the legs.  Like the coronary arteries located in the heart, our legs are susceptible to what is known as Atherosclerosis.   Atherosclerosis builds up fat and cholesterol deposits inside the leg’s vessel walls causing blockages that can create a decrease in blood flow.  This poor circulation can cause mild to severe leg pain.

There are also many risk factors that can lead to the development of PAD including:

  • High cholesterol
  • Poor diet
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Excessive smoking
  • The family history of these diseases can also play a major factor
