When the arteries that pump blood to your arms and legs are blocked by plaque, you may experience the pain or numbness known as peripheral vascular disease. Marian Regional's Heart Center can help with advanced treatment.
Treating Peripheral Vascular Disease
Blood flow to the arms, legs and vital organs is essential for muscles and tissues to get the oxygen and nutrients needed for physical activity and good health. The good news is that there's no need for invasive surgery to help get you back to normal. Cardiologists at Marian's Heart Center are treating patients who suffer from Peripheral Vascular Disease (also known as PVD) with minimally invasive procedures that insert a catheter into an artery to restore blood flow to the blocked area.
At Marian, we use interventional procedures like this whenever possible. It's what has given us the reputation as one of the largest PVD programs with the highest volume and lowest incidence of limb amputation rates on the West Coast.
Marian is now embarking on the development of a wound center which will strengthen Marian's peripheral vascular program, especially since patients who suffer from peripheral vascular disease often experience complications from wounds that simply refuse to heal.
