Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
St. John Providence Health System is a pioneer in treating Peripheral Artery Disease. PAD is a plaque build-up that restricts the blood flow to the legs, which causes pain or intermittent cramping. This can lead to amputation and serious cardiac conditions.
Our doctors were the first in the country to use a device known as the Jetstream,™ which uses tiny rotating blades to cut through accumulated plaque in the legs and a vacuum to clear away the debris left behind.
If you are experiencing painful cramping in your legs, hips, thighs or calves, contact a St. John Providence Health System physician to diagnose and treat the condition before it increases your risk of developing other cardiac conditions.
