Arterial Disease

Optimal blood flow is essential for maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. However, arterial disease can disrupt this vital process, causing pain, cramping, and even posing a serious health risk. Our team of experienced vascular surgeons is dedicated to helping you regain control and prevent complications associated with arterial disease.

Understanding Arterial Disease

Arterial disease occurs when fatty plaque builds up inside your arteries, narrowing the pathways that deliver oxygen-rich blood throughout your body. This can lead to a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Leg pain, cramping, or numbness, especially in the calves, thighs, or buttocks, often worsening with activity and improving with rest
  • Weakness or fatigue in your legs
  • Coldness in your affected limbs
  • Slow-healing sores on your toes or feet
  • Erectile dysfunction in men

The Importance of Early Diagnosis and Treatment

Early diagnosis and treatment of arterial disease are crucial to prevent complications like:

  • Critical limb ischemia: This severe condition occurs when blood flow is severely restricted, leading to tissue death and potentially requiring amputation.
  • Heart attack: Arterial disease can also affect the arteries supplying blood to your heart, increasing your risk of a heart attack.
  • Stroke: Similar to the heart, narrowed arteries can limit blood flow to the brain, potentially leading to a stroke.

Treatment Options for Arterial Disease

At Vascular Care Specialists, we offer a comprehensive range of treatment options for arterial disease, tailored to your individual needs. Here are some potential approaches:

  • Lifestyle modifications: Maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, exercising regularly, and quitting smoking are crucial for managing arterial disease.
  • Medication management: We may recommend medications to lower cholesterol, control blood pressure, and prevent blood clots.
  • Minimally invasive procedures: Our vascular surgeons are skilled in performing minimally invasive procedures, such as angioplasty and stent placement, to open blocked arteries and improve blood flow.
  • Surgical bypass: In specific cases, surgical bypass may be necessary to reroute blood flow around blocked arteries.
