What is Peripheral Arterial Disease?

Peripheral arterial disease is a condition in which a buildup on the walls of major blood vessels or arteries causes them to narrow causing a variety of uncomfortable symptoms. Patients who have peripheral arterial disease typically experience open sores and ulcers on the legs, a burning sensation in their feet, and numbness in their legs and feet. When left untreated, this condition can worsen to critical limb ischemia, which drastically decreases blood flow throughout the lower body and can lead to forced amputation. If you believe you have peripheral arterial disease, we encourage you to come in and see one of our specialists as soon as you can for diagnostic testing and treatment.
