Our physicians can treat nearly every major organ in your body and specialize in minimally invasive, image-guided procedures. We commonly treat patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), varicose veins, and a host of other conditions affecting the vascular system. Here are some of the common symptoms we see in patients.
- Itchy, puffy veins
- Heaviness in the legs
- Discoloration or ulceration in your veins
Varicose veins are often a symptom of superficial venous reflux disease. Patients with this disease have valves in their veins that are damaged or stretched out, which causes the blood to pool in one area and stretch out the vein.
Peripheral Arterial Disease
- Painful cramping in the legs when walking
- Numbness, tingling, and weakness in the lower legs and feet
- Slow healing sore on leg or foot
- Lower temperature in one leg
- Color change in skin on legs or feet
- Loss of hair on legs
- Pain in the legs or feet that awakens you at night
Patients with PAD have poor blood flow to their extremities. If left untreated, it can lead to heart attack, stroke, aneurysm, severe leg pain, ulceration, infections, and/or amputation. Symptoms of PAD are often overlooked as a result of aging, but they are not symptoms you have to live with.
