Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)

Also known as bad circulation or poor blood flow, PAD often causes pain and stiffness while walking or wounds that won't heal. This is due to the narrowing or blockage of blood vessels called arteries.

It is estimated that 12%-20% of Americans age 60 and older suffer from peripheral arterial disease. Due to increased rates of smoking, diabetes, and obesity, PAD is hitting San Antonio harder than many places. The effects of PAD especially impact our Hispanic community.

Stroke Prevention

The arteries that carry blood through the neck to the brain are called carotid arteries. When these arteries narrow or become blocked, they can result in up to 33% of all strokes.

By closely monitoring patient with risk factors such as a history of smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or heart disease, we can take the appropriate steps to minimize the risk of stroke.

Amputation Prevention

San Antonio has one of the highest rates in the nation for amputation due to diabetes and peripheral arterial disease. Many physicians are doing their best to treat patients and avoid this outcome, but the results are minimal.

Amputation prevention can only be accomplished through a coordinated, multi-specialty approach to patient-centered care. Wound care, podiatry, cardiology, internal medicine, primary care, and vascular surgeons, among others, all have a role TOGETHER to make a difference in our community.

Real. Personal. Medicine.

Our society is dominated by challenging lifestyle decisions every day. Do we eat fast food or a salad? Do we exercise or try to spend time with our kids? Over time, these decisions add up and can result in difficult health conditions. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol can easily creep up on us. These are the major risk factors for vascular disease.

Making matters worse, many people in our society, and in South Texas specifically, do not have ACCESS to healthy food options. The hardships of poverty and struggling socioeconomic situations make it very difficult to get back on track with a healthy lifestyle. We understand, and we will do everything we can to help.

It is our mission to provide quality care to the entire vascular patient by challenging every member of our organization to make a positive difference in the lives of our patients.
