Limb Salvage

When circulatory blockages threaten the viability of a patient’s limbs, certain factors, such as the patient’s age or overall health, can complicate treatment.  Saving limbs requires both the advanced medical capabilities and the specialized equipment available at Horizon Surgical Specialists.  If you are at-risk for limb loss Horizon Surgical Specialists can help.

Vascular diseases, including diabetes and PAD (Peripheral Arterial Disease), account for more than half the amputations in the United States.  With early intervention and expert care, many of these limbs can be saved.  

Conditions like diabetic foot calluses can be an early warning sign of a life-threatening disorder.  Seeking help early can help you lower the risk of complications, hospitalization and amputation.
