Circulatory issues associated with the foot and ankle, such as peripheral vascular disease and peripheral arterial disease, are often comorbid with other conditions such as cardiac disease, diabetes, renal disease, and hypertension. If left ignored, they can lead to serious issues such as ulceration, gangrene, and amputation. By placing an emphasis on prevention, our podiatrist can help stave off or diagnose any vascular disorders at their earliest stages when they’re easiest to treat. Our podiatrist will first look to evaluating a patient’s baseline circulatory status, at times recommending additional diagnostic vascular testing. For patients among the high-risk population, such as those that suffer from diabetic foot ulcerations, our podiatrist along with a vascular surgeon will work together to help prevent limb loss. If necessary, modern surgical medicine provides options for advanced and minimally invasive techniques of revascularization
