Although peripheral artery disease (PAD) and osteoarthritis of the knee are fairly common diseases, they are quite serious and are more likely to cause complications as you age. Common symptoms include intense pain which interrupts your everyday life, especially when underlying conditions make the situation worse. If this is you, it is imperative that you connect with a specialist who provides PAD- and osteoarthritis-specific treatments that are minimally invasive. At AVA Vascular, our specialists can provide treatments that alleviate pain and allow you to get back to the life you love.
As PAD advances, fatty plaques begin to build up in arteries, causing a reduction in blood flow and manifesting as leg pain when walking. This can cause additional problems, such as infections, sores, and nonhealing wounds, which can even cause amputation if not treated. Minimally-invasive procedures to reverse PAD damage are invaluable, and at AVA, we can perform such procedures through a minimally-invasive, outpatient process, soothing pain, boosting healing, and stopping the threat of amputation.
“Wear and tear” arthritis, or osteoarthritis of the knee, is often attacked with various medications, injections, and physical therapy – yet these treatments often fail and culminate in knee replacement surgery. However, not every patient can afford this surgery, and not every body can endure it. Additionally, it is not guaranteed to work, and patients face long and painful recovery periods. AVA Vascular offers another choice – genicular artery embolization, which is an interventional radiology treatment. This procedure prevents blood from moving into the lining of the knee (synovium), which stops pain and restores mobility. No knee replacement surgery required!
