Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral Arterial Disease

Remarkable Treatment Will Save You from Amputation

 PAD, Peripheral Arterial Disease, is a serious, yet treatable disease, characterized by a narrowing or blockage of the arteries that carry oxygenated blood to extremities such as the legs. Dr Hollander can perform a minimally invasive, same day, outpatient vascular procedure with just a tiny pin hole.

Let Dr. Hollander save you from leg pain or worse, losing your limbs!
