Peripheral Arterial Disease

Patient with calf pain

An estimated 8 million Americans are affected by peripheral arterial disease, also known as peripheral artery disease (PAD), which can cause leg discomfort with walking or more serious problems such as pain in the foot at rest, toe ulcers, toe infections and gangrene. At Johns Hopkins, our multidisciplinary vascular and endovascular team is dedicated to optimizing the patient’s vascular health, not just treating arterial blockages. In other words, we develop personalized treatment plans for each patient diagnosed with PAD due to narrowing or blockages of arteries to the legs or elsewhere in the body.

At Johns Hopkins, we are dedicated to treating the whole patient, not just lesions.
