Peripheral Vascular Center

Flagler Hospital's team of cardiologists and interventional radiologists offer comprehensive treatment for peripheral vascular disease, with both medical and surgical approaches.

Our goals are to reduce symptoms,improve quality of life and mobility, and prevent heart attack, stroke and amputation. Treatment options may include making lifestyle changes, taking medication, and in some cases having a special procedure or surgery.

What is Peripheral Vascular Disease?

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) involves damage to or blockage in the blood vessels distant from your heart-the peripheral arteries and veins. Your peripheral arteries and veins carry blood to and from your arm and leg muscles and the organs in and below your stomach area. PVD may also affect the arteries leading to your head. When PVD affects only the arteries and not the veins, it is called peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The main forms that PVD may take include blood clots, swelling (inflammation), or narrowing and blockage of the blood vessels.
