Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) can be a frightening and disabling disease, but with proper diagnosis, treatment plans, and education, patients can take the necessary steps to manage their symptoms and stop the progression. Early treatment of PAD can restore mobility, decrease the risk for heart attack and stroke, reduce the risk of amputation, and possibly save a life.
Many hospital procedures to treat PAD are being shifted to office based labs and access centers where cost of treatment can be as much as 30% less and care is provided in a convenient and personal setting.
The Vascular Center of Mansfield is an office based lab that provides patients with an alternative approach for early detection and treatment of Peripheral Vascular Disease. The lab follows strict protocols for the operation of its facility and is closely monitored by a Quality Assurance Program to ensure that patient safety is the highest priority.
“My anxiety quickly turned to complete comfort as I entered the lab. The nurses were warm and attentive, the environment was clean and inviting, and my physician was encouraging and kept me and my family well informed throughout the procedure. The entire experience was much more personal than a tradition hospital setting.”
