Is finding the best peripheral arterial disease doctors in Dallas important to you? Read Lenny’s story!
Lenny*, a very pleasant 68-year-old from Dallas, was diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) by his cardiologist. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is when there is significant amount of calcium and plaque that develops inside the arteries causing them to become hard and narrowed resulting in poor circulation to the legs. About one in every twenty Americans 50 years and older have peripheral arterial disease. Risk factors that cause peripheral arterial disease are advancing age, male sex, African American ethnicity, smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels.Read About PAD on Our Blog
Lenny knew that he needed to address the issue to improve his health and stop the leg cramps he was experiencing every day. At first, he visited a different peripheral arterial disease practice, but he soon transferred to Precision VIR based on reputation—particularly Dr. Jaryd Stein—for having the best peripheral arterial disease doctors in Dallas. Dr. Stein at Precision VIR confirmed the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease, and chose the best treatments for relieving Lenny’s symptoms.
Last fall, Lenny had an endovascular revascularization with a stent placement due to severe blockage in an artery supplying blood to the leg. This is a minimally invasive procedure that clears blockages in the arteries and removes plaque that is causing decreased blood flow. It improved the circulation in the leg allowing him to walk farther without pain and burning in his muscles.
This spring, Lenny had an endovenous radiofrequency ablation for chronic venous insufficiency, a separate problem he was suffering from due to dysfunction of the valves in the superficial veins in his legs. This is also a minimally invasive procedure, thus enabling Lenny to recover quickly and return to his normal life activities in just a short time. During this procedure, a small radiofrequency probe is inserted into the abnormal vein and used to collapse and seal the vein’s wall, thus rerouting the blood to healthier veins in the leg. This resolved Lenny’s leg swelling and leg cramps, increasing the energy in his leg.
