Health Evaluations for Limb Preservation

FACT: 180,000 non-traumatic AMPUTATIONS are performed in the US every year. Over half of these are done WITHOUT a proper evaluation or screening first, to determine if the limb could have been SAVED.

FACT: An estimated 10-12+ million Americans suffer from poor circulation in their legs and feet due to PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE (PAD).

FACT: PAD is a common circulation problem in the arteries of the leg. Over time, these arteries become blocked with plaque, putting you at risk for STROKE, HEART ATTACK, and lower limb/extremity AMPUTATION.

Don't become a statistic. Let Vascular Access Centers HELP. Take the first STEP, and call us today to schedule your evaluation! Vascular Access Centers is committed to keeping you on your feet by saving your limbs and your quality of life.

Fact: "Half of those who suffer from PAD will show NO signs or symptoms."

Know what to look for

Risk factors play a key role in determining if you're at risk. Risk factors include:

  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • High Blood Pressure
  • High Cholesterol
  • Obesity
  • Family History
  • Age (50+)

SIGNS or SYMPTOMS may include pain at exertion or rest, numbness, tingling and fatigue in the hips, buttocks, legs and feet.

Fact: Many amputations can be AVOIDED, and circulation in the legs and feet improved through MINIMALLY INVASIVE/NON-SURGICAL techniques (via a BANDAID-SIZED incision). Vascular Access Centers specializes in all endovascular techniques to treat PAD both ABOVE AND BELOW THE KNEE!
