Primary areas of practice include invasive cardiology, vascular medicine and endovascular interventions including the treatment of venous disease and peripheral arterial disease.
Peripheral arterial disease, also known as peripheral vascular disease, is a common vascular condition in which blood supply to the limbs is reduced due to the narrowing of arteries. Peripheral arterial disease is caused by the accumulation of fat, calcium, and cholesterol in the arterial wall (atherosclerosis), resulting in reduced blood flow - and therefore oxygen - to the limbs.
Veins are hollow, flexible tubes with flaps inside called valves that open and close, directing the blood flow in one direction towards your heart. Venous disease occurs when these valves become weakened or damaged, causing blood to flow down in a retrograde (backward) fashion into the legs and pool in the veins. In simple terms, venous disease is a condition caused by malfunctioning of the valves in the veins of the legs.
