Successfully Treating Thousands of Patients Every Year
Sharp provides multidisciplinary treatment for all forms of peripheral vascular disease. Board-certified and specially trained interventional radiologists, some cardiologists and vascular surgeons work together with your physician to develop the best treatment plan for you.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
Whenever possible, physicians use minimally invasive vascular procedures to correct vascular disease. Minimally invasive procedures usually mean less pain and quicker recovery for patients.
Sharp's Peripheral Vascular Disease Rehabilitation Program can significantly reduce pain symptoms, improve circulation, decrease hospitalizations and improve lifestyle through exercise and lifestyle modification for both postsurgical and nonsurgical patients.
The PVD Rehabilitation Program is for patients who have symptoms of intermittent leg pain, also known as claudication, while walking and performing other weight-bearing activities. The rehabilitation program caters to the unique needs of patients with PVD and is designed to improve circulation, reduce pain and prevent further progression of the disease.
