Our Diagnostic Vascular Testing
Diagnostic vascular testing proves to be necessary to treat several. For example, complete vascular testing is useful in treating high-risk diabetic patients to prevent
complications from poor circulation.
Patients with diabetes, poor circulation, or any other foot or ankle disorder
are encouraged to schedule an appointment at the Chestnut Hill Podiatry
Associates office today.
Conditions like peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) have been on the rise in recent years and are typically
associated with other conditions, such as cardiac disease, renal disease, hypertension, and diabetes.
Prevention is key, so early diagnosis and treatment of these disorders can help prevent future issues, like ulceration, gangrene, and amputation. At Chestnut Hill Podiatry Associates our foot and ankle specialists will perform an evaluation of your baseline circulatory status by placing a device similar to a blood pressure cuff around your legs. This pain-free device will measure your circulatory flow and provide our specialists with the necessary information to determine if additional vascular testing is needed.
