Preserving a limb is critical to preserving quality of life and independence. PCVI offers a range of advanced and effective treatments and procedures for limb salvage, using the latest techniques and technology. Our vascular surgeons provide aggressive yet carefully targeted interventions that spare tissue, repair damage, and help maintain and restore function in limbs that would otherwise have to be amputated.
The most common reason a lower extremity is amputated is due to diabetes, although vascular disease, trauma, infections can be other causes. Our center physicians and staff are experts at treating patients with limb-threatening conditions. Our approach to healing is aggressive and comprehensive, coordinating traditional and advanced therapies, with a focus on surgery to heal wounds and improve circulation. While not all amputation can be avoided, the World Health Organization estimates that 85% are preventable.
