Palm Beach Heart & Vascular provides advanced care of the heart, arteries and veins with special and much needed focus on amputation prevention. Team PBHV work in synergy with patients and other healthcare providers to treat Peripheral Atreial Disease (PAD) and complications of Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI).

Amputation is a problem

The growing worldwide epidemic of preventable amputations caused by peripheral artery disease (PAD) and fueled by diabetes threatens to disable approximately 2 million Americans, according to a 2019 study published in the journal Vascular Health and Risk Management. Even worse is the extremely high mortality rate when combined with leg wounds, foot ulcers, or gangrene.

Caused by these factors

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) from atherosclerosis causes inadequate blood flow leading to plaque buildup in the arteries of the legs and feet. When blood supply to the lower extremities becomes severely reduced patients may feel leg pain, but many do not, due to peripheral neuropathy. Unable to feel their feet from PAD or diabetes places patients at risk for amputation either through inadequate blood flow or leg wounds and ulcers, this combination of issues is known as Critical Limb Ischemia (CLI).

This is the place to solve it and why

Preventing amputations caused by Critical Limb Ischemia requires a dedicated team of highly experienced specialists working together to extend life expectancy and improve patient function. Revascularization procedures, which restore vital blood flow, should be performed by highly trained physicians dedicated to patients facing this serious problem. Left untreated, this disease has a five-year death rate which is higher than many of the deadliest cancers, including pancreatic, colorectal, liver and breast cancer.

Recognized as a global expert in the treatment of preventing amputations and performing lifesaving minimally invasive revascularization procedures, Dr. Michael has successfully treated thousands of patients, co-authored global guidelines on the disease, and regularly speaks and trains physicians worldwide to help the medical community better face this epidemic unnecessarily claiming the limb and life of one person every 30 seconds.
