Peripheral Artery Disease Treatment

Tariq Haddadin, MD, FACC, FSCAI

  • Specializing in the treatment of below the knee complications of  peripheral artery disease.
  • Board Certified in Interventional Cardiology with special interest in Peripheral Artery Disease.
  • Advanced training in endovascular treatment of PAD.
  • Special interests: Limb salvage and amputation prevention.

Many major (above/below knee) amputations can be avoided. If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, you are at a much higher risk for complications from wounds. Since diabetics have decreased blood flow, injuries take longer to heal and may require special attention. If you have been diagnosed with this disease, please take every precaution to prevent even the smallest of injuries from occurring. But if you discover an injury, even a tiny cut, let us help ensure you receive proactive care as soon as possible.

Advanced Options for Patients with:

  • Non-healing ulcers
  • Gangrenous limbs
  • Claudication
  • Cold limbs 

We utilize the latest, most advanced technology in endovascular procedures to help cross lesions and total occlusions anywhere from the aorta to down to the foot, including:

  • Angioplasty
  • Stenting
  • CTO device
  • Atherectomy devices 

As opposed to open surgery, minimally invasive, cath-based procedures have:

  • Minimal recovery time
  • Lower risk of procedure-related morbidity
  • Minimal risk of infection
  • Up to 90% procedural success rates
  • Up to 90% 2-5 year limb salvage rates

Signs and Symptoms of PAD:

  • Foot, calf, hip or thigh discomfort when walking (Claudication/Leg Pain)
  • Pain at rest in lower legs
  • Foot or toe pain that interrupts sleep
  • Pale, discolored or bluish feet or toes
  • Slow-healing wounds or ulcers on the feet
  • Diminished or absent pedal pulses
  • Gangrene of the legs or feet
