Peripheral Arterial Disorders Seattle is caused by blockage from the buildup of plaque in your arteries that supply oxygenated blood to your legs and arms. If peripheral arterial disease is not treated in a timely fashion, you may lose a limb. Dr. Sidhu uses ultrasound to diagnose peripheral arterial disease inserts a catheter through your groin to reach the blocked artery. Balloon angioplasty, an atherectomy catheter or a small metal mesh stent is then used to fix your blockage.
If you’re looking for comprehensive peripheral arterial disease treatment, get in touch with Vein, Vascular & Aesthetic Associates. Serving the communities of Everett, Issaquah, Kirkland, Newcastle, Seattle and Sammamish.
