Einstein Institute of Heart & Vascular Health is a leading facility in the Philadelphia area for treatment of arterial and vascular disease. Our peripheral arterial disease specialists offer the latest treatments.
Peripheral arterial disease, or vascular disease, is a serious condition referring to the blockage or buildup of blood vessels – usually in a patient's legs and feet. While peripheral arterial disease, also known as PAD, can be deadly, its symptoms can be subtle. Many times, patients attribute PAD to other ailments like arthritis, back pain or the effects of aging.
While some patients with PAD never develop symptoms, it's important to recognize them, know the risks and seek treatment. Symptoms can include:
Because PAD disease afflicts arteries and veins that are particularly narrow, surgery in these areas is difficult. But with technological advances, peripheral vascular stenting is now possible. Today, Einstein's Institute of Heart & Vascular Health performs this life-saving technique and transforming the lives of its PAD patients.
