At the Cardiovascular Institute of Northwest Florida, we provide diagnosis and treatment of blockages throughout the vascular system, including the carotid arteries leading to the brain, the blood vessels in the legs, the renal arteries leading to the kidneys, the mesenteric arteries which supply blood to your intestines, and the aorta and subclavian arteries. As cardiologists, we know that our patients with Coronary Artery Disease are also at risk for blockages elsewhere in their bodies that can be life-threatening and/or severely limit the quality of life. For example: Blocked or narrowed carotid arteries can cause a stroke. Blockages in the vessels of your legs can cause swelling and pain when walking. In addition, wounds on the legs and feet may be slow to heal and prone to infections that could lead to amputation. We believe providing this next level of vascular care is vital. We strive to provide the best diagnostic tools and quality care available in the Panama City, Florida region and neighboring communities. We offer a nationally accredited vascular ultrasound lab for accurate diagnosis and our physicians providing vascular treatment are board certified in peripheral vascular interventions. In addition, our in-house research department allows us to offer many cutting-edge therapies that may not be available at most clinics. Our cardiologists who offer advanced vascular treatments are:
