Amavita Heart and Vascular HealthTM Raises Awareness about Peripheral Artery Disease

Leading healthcare provider urges community members to prioritize their vascular health and get screened this September.

In recognition of September being Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Month, Amavita Heart and Vascular HealthTM, a trusted name in cardiac and vascular care, is committed to raising awareness about PAD and encouraging individuals to take proactive steps towards better vascular health. PAD is a serious condition that affects blood flow to the limbs and can lead to severe complications if left untreated. Through education and early detection, Amavita aims to empower the community to prioritize their circulatory health and seek timely screenings.

PAD occurs when there is a buildup of fatty deposits (plaque) in the arteries that supply blood to the extremities, most commonly the legs. This condition can result in reduced blood flow, leading to leg pain, cramping, weakness, and even non-healing wounds. Left unaddressed, PAD can increase the risk of heart attack, stroke, and other cardiovascular complications.

Dr. Pedro Martinez-Clark, the renowned vascular specialist in South Florida, emphasized the importance of awareness and early detection: “PAD is often underdiagnosed, yet it poses a significant threat to individuals’ overall health and quality of life. By shedding light on this condition during PAD Month, we hope to encourage more people to recognize the symptoms, understand the risk factors, and take the initiative to get screened. Early detection allows for timely intervention, making a remarkable difference in preventing further complications.”

Amavita advocates that anyone experiencing symptoms such as leg pain, cramping, or numbness, especially while walking or exercising, should seek medical advice. Amavita provides comprehensive screenings to assess the risk of PAD and other circulatory issues.

Amavita provides ankle-brachial index (ABI), ultrasound of legs or feet, and angiography to provide patients with diagnoses. These procedures are designed to arm individuals with knowledge about their vascular health and equip them with the tools they need to take control of their well-being.
