Amputation Prevention: Saving Legs, Saving Lives

Did you know that more than half of the amputations in the U.S. are due to vascular disease?*

At Lam Vascular & Associates, we believe amputation shouldn’t be the only option if you’re living with peripheral artery disease (PAD).

If you have been told by a doctor that amputation is your only option…

A second opinion for amputation prevention could save your leg, and maybe your life.

Dallas vascular surgeon, Dr. Russell Lam and his team dedicate their practice to amputation prevention. Saving the limbs of PAD patients is their priority. Because of today’s advanced technology, PAD patients’ options go beyond amputation and/or invasive surgery.

Hence, Dr. Lam is able to offer minimally invasive procedures.

These include laser atherectomy and angioplasty with stenting.

There’s no doubt that facing an amputation can be frightening.

This is why Dr. Lam is passionate about educating patients who are living with PAD and providing them with treatment options or procedures specifically tailored for them.

Therefore, a second opinion from a renowned specialist, like Russell Lam, MD, can provide you the peace of mind knowing you are choosing the treatment option for your specific needs.

In fact, with over 10,000 complex peripheral interventions in his career, Dr. Lam is credited with preventing thousands of leg amputations.

Consequently, many of these interventions are result of patients who sought a second opinion after hearing their conditions were inoperable or not treatable with medical therapies.

This is true for Harvey.

Fortunately, he traveled all the way from Canada to visit Dr. Lam, still thinking there was nothing anyone could do to save his foot. READ HIS STORY.
