Stepping Out of Pain
It can be difficult to live with the pain and discomfort that comes with vascular disease. Vascular disease ranges from diseases of your arteries, veins, and lymph vessels to blood disorders that affect circulation. Without special care or attention, these could lead to more serious conditions like aneurysms, blood clots, or stroke.
If you think you’re at risk for vascular disease, talk to your doctor, or find a doctor at Saint Thomas Health by calling (844) 655-2111.
