Peripheral Artery Disease

The Vascular Clinic at MHVI focuses on the evaluation and treatment of blood vessels specifically outside the heart.  One common type of vascular disease involves the arteries that carry blood to the arms, legs, brain, and other vital organs, which can become narrowed or clogged, interfering with normal blood flow.  This can lead to problems such as pain in your legs when walking, arm pain with activity, or even strokes.  Another type of vascular disease involves veins in the legs (called “varicose veins”), which can get enlarged and swollen due to damaged valves in the blood vessel that lead to backward flow of blood down the leg.

At MHVI, we offer state-of-the-art diagnosis and comprehensive treatment for patients with vascular disease. Our cardiologists and vascular surgeons work closely with patients to provide the most appropriate treatment. We perform minimally invasive procedures such as peripheral angioplasty and venous ablations that offer excellent outcomes and rapid recovery.

MHVI is one of the leading institutions in the metropolitan area in the evaluation and treatment of vascular disease. We are also active in clinical research and have the most recent technological advancements in the field available for your care.  Our cardiologists and surgeons, together with their team of health care providers, are looking forward to working with you to help you learn and understand your medical condition, treat your illness and improve your health and quality of life.
