Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Treatment

Most patients, who have Peripheral Artery Disease, do not experience the symptoms right away. However, patients affected with PAD will likely experience symptoms such as pain in the legs during walking and loss of hair. PAD limits the blood flow from the vessels to the heart. Without the proper treatment, the effects of PAD can lead to amputation of the foot or legs. Major amputation can potentially lower the life expectancy of patients that are affected with PAD.
