ead just a few of the many stories about how our vascular surgery team can help people get back to their lives.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep in the body. Most develop in the lower leg or thigh, but they can also occur in your arm, chest and other locations.

If you felt pain in your legs, you might put off asking your doctor about it. That could be a serious mistake, because leg pain isn’t always due to muscle strain. It could be due to peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Carotid artery disease develops when the major arteries in your neck (called the carotid arteries), become narrowed or blocked. These arteries extend from your heart to your head, and supply oxygen-rich blood to your brain.

You start out on a walk, but after a few minutes your legs become so painful that you have to stop. In a few minutes you feel better. You start walking again, and it happens again. Is this just another inevitable part of growing older? Maybe not, maybe it’s Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD.
