KENS-TV Great Day SA Interview with Dr. Michael Peck
Dr. Michael Peck did an interview on KENS-TV Great Day SA to talk about Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.). Leg pain may seem harmless but if it’s due to circulation issues it can lead to serious medical conditions. Learn more about P.A.D. by watching this segment.
What is Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.)?
P.A.D. happens when narrowed arteries, due to plaque buildup, reduces blood flow to the extremities.
Why is this an important topic, especially for those in our community?
P.A.D. symptoms are often ignored, undiagnosed or misdiagnosed and we want take this opportunity to educate the public about to look for if they suspect P.A.D. Our first and foremost goal at PVA is to prevent unnecessary limb loss.
How does PVA help people who have P.A.D.?
Vascular surgeons, like myself and my partners at PVA, are the only specialists extensively trained to provide all treatment options for P.A.D. including diagnostic ultrasound testing, medical management, minimally invasive balloon procedures, stents, traditional surgery, hybrid procedures and prosthetic care. At PVA, we provide lifelong care for P.A.D. which is a lifelong disease.
