PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASE
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is also known as "poor circulation." With PVD, the vessels that carry blood to your lower body become narrowed or blocked. This makes it harder for blood to reach your leg.
If PVD is not treated, leg and foot tissue may die. This is called gangrene and may lead to amputation. An expert podiatric physician can diagnose peripheral vascular disease and recommend a variety of treatment options to avoid serious complications such as amputation.
