Peripheral Arterial Disease

Treating the Whole Patient

An estimated 8 million Americans are affected by peripheral arterial disease, also known as peripheral artery disease (PAD). This condition can cause leg discomfort when walking or more serious problems such as pain in the foot at rest, toe ulcers, toe infections and gangrene. The Johns Hopkins multidisciplinary vascular and endovascular team is dedicated to optimizing the patient’s vascular health, not just treating arterial blockages. Our team develops a personalized treatment plan for each patient diagnosed with PAD.


We are dedicated to treating the whole patient, not just lesions.

-Christopher Abularrage, vascular surgeon
