Are You at Risk for Vascular Disease?

Most people know that heart disease occurs when there are blockages in the arteries that carry blood to and from the heart.

But what many people don’t realize is that these blockages can also occur in any vein or artery throughout the body and cause many life-threatening vascular conditions, including abdominal aortic aneurysm and peripheral artery disease.

That’s why it’s so important to have expert vascular care available close to home.
