As we have discussed in previous posts on PAD, millions of people in the United States suffer from this life, and potentially limb threatening, disease. What is unfortunate is that many people don’t know they have it. In our Peripheral Artery Disease “Ask the Expert” video series we answer many questions about PAD including:
- What is PAD?
- What are common symptoms of PAD?
- How do you test for PAD?
- When should someone be tested for PAD?
- What are the treatment options for PAD?
- What physicians are involved in treating PAD?
- What kind of research is being done at Emory for PAD?
If watching the PAD videos sparks questions, join my colleague Dr. Khushrow Niazi on Monday, April 25 from 12:30p.m. – 1 :15p.m. for an interactive, online Q&A web chat on the topic of PAD. He will answer questions and discuss various topics about PAD including prevention, detection, symptoms, testing, treatment options and innovative new research.
If you think you may have PAD after viewing the videos, please call Emory HealthConnection℠ 404-778-7777 to schedule an appointment.
Do you have questions about PAD in general? If so, please let me know in the comments section.
