A comprehensive resource for everything you need to know about Peripheral Artery Disease
If you’ve been our patient for any amount of time, you know how committed we are at Lam Vascular & Associates to educating our patients about their conditions, treatment options and any needed lifestyle modifications that can improve health and quality of life. Our goal is always to get our patients out of pain and on the road to better health.
If you’re one of our patients who has been diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (PAD), you understand what we mean when we say it’s a tricky condition. Many people have never even heard of it before they were diagnosed with it.
But knowing all about PAD is important if it is a condition you deal with—either personally or if someone you care for is affected by it. PAD, left untreated, can lead to tremendous pain, amputation and even death. But early diagnosis and intervention can make a world of difference. It could—quite literally—save your life and limb.
To better serve this segment of our patient population, as well as the many referring physicians we work with, we have developed something called the PAD Resource Portal. You’ll find it on our website and it is an amazing resource.
This comprehensive, deep-dive into the topic of peripheral artery disease will tell you everything you need to know. As a patient, it can help you become more educated about PAD so you can better advocate and care for yourself. As a physician, it can help you navigate conversations with your patients about this complex condition.
Portal topics include:
- What is PAD?
- Risk Factors and Symptoms
- PAD and Diabetes
- Amputation Prevention
- Diagnosing PAD and Treatment
- Vascular Vocabulary
The portal also includes helpful videos, downloads and links to other resources. We’re very proud of this project and excited to get it into the hands of the people who need it.
