Lifestyle changes

If your symptoms are manageable, we may recommend lifestyle changes to address them. These changes may include quitting smoking, exercising, blood pressure monitoring, control of blood sugar levels, and more.

Medications

There are a number of medications available when it comes to PAD treatment. While these medications won’t cure you, they can improve your ability to walk without pain, lower chances of blood clots, and improve your cholesterol levels.

Surgery

Bypass surgery via abdominal and leg incisions can create a detour around the affected sections of your artery. A Y-shaped tube called a graft is attached to your aorta above the blockage, then each branch is attached to the femoral arteries. While surgery is the most invasive option, it does help to restore blood flow in roughly 85% of patients.
