Diagnostic vascular testing can be a necessity in a number of cases. In order to treat the high-risk diabetic patient, or in order to prevent complications from poor circulation, a complete circulation test must be done prior to therapy.
If you suffer from complications of diabetes, poor circulation, or any other ailment that affects the feet and ankles, please schedule an appointment at our podiatry office in Merrillville, IN, today.
The incidence of peripheral vascular disease and peripheral arterial disease is on the rise over the last few decades. It is usually associated with other conditions such as cardiac disease, renal disease, hypertension, and diabetes.
Early diagnosis and treatment of this problem may help prevent future problems such as ulceration, gangrene, or the need for amputation. Our foot and ankle experts will evaluate your baseline circulatory status and recommend if you need additional vascular testing. The testing is not typically painful, and consists of using a device that squeezes your leg to check your circulatory flow, much in the same way a blood pressure cuff works.
Please call our podiatry office in Merrillville, IN, at 847-390-7666 if you have any additional questions about vascular testing. We will be happy to provide you with all the information that you may need. Come experience Weil Foot & Ankle Institute!

We are requiring patients and anyone accompanying them to arrive for their appointment with a face covering, (such as a scarf, bandana, t-shirt, handmade mask or other) that covers their nose and mouth already in place. If they or their guests arrive without one, they will be asked to return to their car to put one on or reschedule their appointment. We are unable to issue surgical masks to patients at this time.
