      Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition that ranges in severity from uncomfortable to life-threatening. It’s a disease that affects the arteries of your lower or upper extremities. You must receive an accurate diagnosis to have it treated properly. In Brooklyn, the treatment is available from the best vein and artery doctor in New York City at the Downtown Vein & Vascular Center. If you show any symptoms of PAD, call today and get back on your feet, pain-free and healthy.

      What Is PAD?

      PAD stands for peripheral artery disease. It’s a condition that leads to pain in your legs and feet due to insufficient blood flow. Arteries are the blood vessels that carry blood away from your heart to the rest of your body. When those vessels become blocked, you require a timely treatment to keep the disease from progressing, leading to potentially serious consequences, such as an amputation.

      In Brooklyn, you can find the best vein and artery disease doctor at the Downtown Vein & Vascular Center. The experienced team in the state-of-the-art facility provide exceptional care for this potentially life-threatening disease to ensure your continued health.

      How Do I Know if I Need PAD Treatment?

      You may have few or no symptoms, or you may experience pain in your buttocks or legs when you’re walking or exercising, which is a condition called claudication. You may have pain in your calves and feet at rest or leg and foot cramps at night or you can develop non-healing ulcers on your feet.

      Other common indicators of peripheral artery disease include:

      • Sores on your toes or legs that are slow to heal
      • Faint pulse in your ankles
      • Legs that are cold to the touch
      • Arms that hurt when performing small tasks like knitting or typing
      • Discoloration of skin in your lower extremities
      • Hair on your feet and toes that stops growing

      How Is PAD Treated?

      A number of imaging and blood tests are available at your Brooklyn doctor’s office to determine whether you have PAD.

      Lifestyle changes are the first line of treatment for PAD, which may include:

      • Losing weight
      • Quitting smoking
      • Improving your exercise routine

      Procedures that prevent further complications include:

      What Happens if I Don’t Get PAD Treatment?

      In addition to increased pain and decreased mobility, untreated PAD may lead to various complications, ranging from neuropathy to a gangrene and amputation. Critical limb ischemia is preventable with a timely and appropriate intervention.
