About the Vascular Clinic
Just as the arteries in your heart can become clogged, so can the arteries in your legs, neck or other parts of your body. If you have pain or cramping in your legs, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or smoke, you may have symptoms or risk factors of peripheral artery disease (PAD) or other types of peripheral vascular disease.
PAD and other potentially serious conditions like carotid artery stenosis and abdominal aortic aneurysm affect circulation and the health of blood vessels outside the heart, increasing your chance of having a heart attack or stroke.
The Vascular Clinic at the Heart & Vascular Institute brings specialists together in one location to diagnose and treat peripheral vascular disease. If you’ve been diagnosed, you can benefit from seeing one of our specialists in interventional cardiology, interventional radiology or vascular surgery. We also provide important educational information to help prevent or manage peripheral vascular disease and keep you well.
Your first visit
The Vascular Clinic is located on the second floor of Lancaster General Hospital. Even before you arrive for your first visit, we will have carefully reviewed your records and will be ready to help you navigate through diagnosis, treatment and follow-up. During your initial visit, you will be evaluated to determine the best course of treatment. If diagnostic tests are needed, they can be performed onsite at LGH. The Clinic team will collaborate to develop the best possible treatment plan for you, and share that plan with your primary care doctor.
Talk with your doctor or call 717-544-6565 to schedule an appointment.
