Advanced Diagnostics and Care for Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD), also known as peripheral artery disease (PAD), is a serious vascular condition in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs. It is most common in the legs but can also affect the arms and kidneys. Leg pain after walking, or claudication, is the key symptom. Unfortunately, such pain is often considered a normal function of aging, when in truth it may indicate severe, systemic coronary artery disease.
Our medical staff includes: Dr. Vishal Arora,Dr. Deepak Kapoor and Dr. Gautam Agarwal, all experienced cardiologists and surgeons who specialize in treating PVD and offer advanced diagnostic and treatment options including:
- Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) test to determine if you have PVD
- A 64-slice CT scanner, which can noninvasively pinpoint blockages
- Diagnostics and interventions for PVD in the legs, arms and kidneys, including traditional angioplasty and stents
- Bypass surgery
- The latest artherectomy therapies to remove plaque from the arteries in the legs, either above or below the knee, and avoid stents or surgeries
