Treatment of Circulation Disorders
Vascular testing can assist in identifying a condition known as Peripheral Arterial Disease or PAD. PAD is a common condition experienced by close to 10 million Americans which can lead to more serious complications if left untreated.
PAD is characterized by a decrease in circulation of blood flow caused by a build-up of plaque in the arteries of the legs. Symptoms of Peripheral Arterial Disease include:
- Fatigue in legs
- Pain or cramping
- Skin discoloration
- High blood pressure

Surgical Corrections of Foot Disorders
In most cases, invasive methods are not necessary to correct many foot disorders. Though in more extreme conditions, surgery may be required. The need for surgery will depend on the severity of the condition, the amount of pain the patient is experiencing, and the patient’s past response to various treatments.
