Virginia Heart Vascular Specialists
Manage your vascular disease with doctors you trust. Virginia Heart provides evaluations to see if a non-invasive approach may provide equal benefit and potentially avoid the need to undergo a more invasive procedure.
Vascular Disease Symptoms
Vascular Disease is very common and often under diagnosed. At Virginia Heart we perform a comprehensive evaluation of vascular symptoms. These symptoms may include: Claudication (pain in the legs while walking) Poor wound healing Cramping in the legs and buttocks Low back pain Pain in the feet, thighs or buttocks when walking Prior stroke or TIA Temporary loss of vision in one eye, slurred speech, or weakness or numbness in one arm or leg Unexplained dizziness Swelling of legs, feet or ankles
At Virginia Heart, we are proud to have fully accredited labs with national accreditation. There are many tests we have as options for our patients, both in the office and at the hospital. Your Virginia Heart vascular specialist will provide you with individualized care by assessing your symptoms and history and provide you with vascular disease testing using state of the art technology.
Once diagnosed with Vascular Disease, our physicians will work with you to find the best treatment plan for you. Based on the results from testing, Virginia Heart has experienced interventionists who specialize in symptomatic disease management with interventions. Virginia Heart has access to a network of surgeons that are nationally recognized in this field.
Peripheral Artery Disease
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) develops when your arteries become clogged with plaque- fatty deposits that limit blood flow to your legs. Just like clogged arteries in the heart, clogged arteries in the legs mean you are at risk for a heart attack or stroke. 8 to 12 million Americans are effected by Peripheral Artery Disease. Take the risk assessment below and speak with your Virginia Heart specialist if you have any of these symptoms.
