Complete vascular care close to home
Do you experience pain in your legs when you walk up hill or long distances? If so, you may have peripheral artery disease (PAD). Harrison’s Heart & Vascular Center treats this and many other vascular conditions, all conveniently close to home.

PAD exists when a blockage develops in the arteries that supply blood to the legs. Symptoms  include leg muscle pains or cramping that increase with activity, progressively causing pain even at rest; leg numbness; and skin discoloration. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please see your physician. Many treatments exist for these blockages, ranging from balloon angioplasty, stenting, atherectomy (removal of the buildup from the artery), and surgery.

Harrison’s Heart & Vascular Center has been formally recognized for outstanding quality, and is consistently rated in the 99th percentile for patient satisfaction. It is equipped with the latest technology to diagnose and treat vascular and other heart issues. Since opening in 2010, its specially trained cardiovascular team has performed well over 3,500 procedures and surgeries annually. This team works closely together, 24 hours a day, to assure you  receive the best treatment for your disease.
