Circulatory disease can cause serious problems with the health of legs and feet. It can even lead to the loss of a limb. Amputation has a profound impact on quality of life. About 50 to 60 percent of patients who undergo limb amputation die within a year of surgery.
That’s why Goshen Heart & Vascular Center places a high priority on advanced techniques to save a limb that’s suffering from loss of blood flow. Our team of cardiologists, surgeons, interventional radiologists and other specialists perform procedures to prevent amputation and preserve your quality of life.
Vascular disease, such as vasculitis and peripheral artery disease (PAD), is often the reason for loss of blood flow in an extremity and the eventual need for limb preservation treatments. We can find ways to control these conditions and prevent amputation in Goshen, IN. Talk to your doctor or call (574) 537-5000 for a referral.
