Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) Diagnostics and Therapy in Phoenix, AZ
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a blood circulation condition where blood vessels outside of the heart and brain narrow, block, or spasm. PVD commonly occurs in veins or arteries and often causes fatigue, cramping, and pain in the lower parts of the body, particularly the legs. PVD can also have detrimental effects to the arteries and vessels that supply blood to your kidneys, arms, stomach, and intestines. Since many people experiencing symptoms of PVD assume they are out of shape or generally fatigued, PVD regularly goes undiagnosed and untreated. This can lead to much more serious conditions, including stroke. At Arizona Vein and Laser Institute, we provide advanced diagnostics and therapy for patients with PVD.
