Free Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Screenings
Advanced Vascular Surgery offers free PAD screenings for non-Medicare patients and $25 screenings, the lowest price possible, for Medicare patients
Affecting approximately eight million Americans, peripheral artery disease occurs when the arteries in the legs become blocked, causing the legs to not receive enough blood or oxygen. This blockage is caused by an accumulation of plaque, causing a hardening of the arteries, called atherosclerosis. A serious condition, PAD can cause pain, disability, and an increased risk of heart disease.

- A history of smoking
- High cholesterol
- African American or Hispanic ethnicity
