Advanced PAD & Ulceration

Getting to the Cause of Foot Ulcers

Foot ulcers are painful and dangerous if left untreated. Often, the underlying cause of foot ulcers is advanced peripheral arterial disease (PAD)

To effectively treat advanced peripheral arterial disease and foot ulcerations, our surgeons offer the latest and most trusted minimally invasive treatments as well as open treatment options, including artery bypass and endarterectomy.

When painful foot ulcers stop patients in their tracks, Geisinger vascular surgeons have the skill and experience to diagnose and treat the root cause.
