FREE Understanding PAD – Peripheral Artery Disease
• Get screened to learn your vascular disease risk
• Enjoy a complimentary hot breakfast
• Learn the risk factors and symptoms of PAD
• Understand PAD treatment options
• You’ll be entered to win door prizes such as movie tickets and dinner!
These complimentary full, vascular health screenings are recommended for those over the age of 50 with at least one of these risk factors:
• High Blood Pressure
• High Cholesterol
• Smoker, current or former
• Family History of Vascular Disease including stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, peripheral artery disease or abdominal aortic aneurysms.
The complimentary screenings are non-invasive and painless. We’ll check your ankle-brachial index using blood pressure cuffs and scan your carotid artery and abdomen with ultrasound. When we see or hear anything of concern, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your results with a medical professional at that time.
Enjoy a free buffet breakfast, including eggs, toast, a variety of sausages, potatoes, coffee and orange juice at one of the best restaurants in Tinley Park.
You’ll also get a fuller understanding of peripheral artery disease, narrowing of the arteries in your limbs, especially your legs. You’ll discover the symptoms you should watch for, including claudication, pain when walking that eases with rest. We’ll discuss evidence-based treatments, and explain the complications you may endure, including amputation and stroked, if PAD is left untreated.
Meet and hear from recognized expert physicians who are board-certified and fellowship trained in both vascular and endovascular surgery, including Dr. Tanquilut, Dr. Pradhan, Dr. Alhalbouni and Dr. Qureshi.
