Vascular Treatment

Vascular Surgery & Treatment

In the intricate network of arteries that course through our bodies, a silent threat can lurk often unnoticed until it manifests in subtle signs that should not be ignored. Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a vascular condition that occurs when plaque accumulates in the arteries, leading to blockages that restrict blood flow and essential nutrients to the lower limbs. Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists offers vascular care to address the unique challenges posed by this condition. Continue reading or call us today to learn more about our vascular treatment. We are happy to schedule an appointment with a licensed vascular doctor or arrange a walk-in for as soon as possible.

Understanding Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

Peripheral Artery Disease is a condition characterized by the narrowing of arteries, primarily in the legs and feet, due to the accumulation of plaque. This plaque buildup restricts the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the lower extremities, leading to a range of symptoms that should not be overlooked.

Symptoms of PAD

The early stages of PAD may go unnoticed, but as the condition progresses, symptoms become more apparent. Individuals with PAD may experience pain and fatigue while walking, known as claudication. Skin changes, such as discoloration and the development of ulcers, are also common signs that merit immediate attention.


Risk Factors of PAD

PAD shares common risk factors with cardiovascular diseases, including smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Age and a family history of vascular issues also contribute to an increased risk of developing PAD.

Our Vascular Care and Treatment

Seeking vascular care and treatment at the onset of PAD symptoms is paramount to preventing severe complications. Vascular specialists play a crucial role in addressing the unique challenges posed by this condition through a combination of diagnostic tools, lifestyle modifications, and targeted interventions.

  • Early Diagnosis through Screening: Vascular specialists employ non-invasive tests such as ankle-brachial index (ABI) and Doppler ultrasound to evaluate blood flow and identify potential blockages in the arteries. Early diagnosis allows for timely intervention, reducing the risk of complications.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Smoking cessation, adopting a heart-healthy diet, maintaining a regular exercise routine, and managing underlying conditions such as diabetes contribute significantly to improving vascular health and minimizing the progression of PAD.
  • Medication: Vascular specialists may prescribe medications to address specific aspects of PAD, such as antiplatelet agents to reduce the risk of blood clots, cholesterol-lowering medications, and medications to control blood pressure. Medication management is tailored to each individual's unique health profile.
  • Minimally Invasive Procedures: In cases where PAD has advanced, vascular specialists may recommend minimally invasive procedures to restore blood flow. Angioplasty, stenting, and atherectomy are examples of interventions that can alleviate blockages and improve circulation without the need for open surgery.

See a Physician to Prevent Complications

The consequences of untreated PAD can be severe, potentially leading to complications such as chronic pain, non-healing wounds, and, in extreme cases, amputation. However, with proactive vascular care and treatment, individuals diagnosed with PAD can significantly reduce their risk of complications and enjoy an improved quality of life.

What Our Happy Patiens Say

Susan Knippenberg

Dr. Zeno helped me to walk again without pain after years. He was very polite and experienced. I had really bad pain in my right foot that was giving me a hard time while walking. The treatment he recommended and I chose to go with cured my pains. Thank you, Dr. Zeno and Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists.

Rachel Edwards

I came across this clinic when I was searching for a podiatrist in my area. The person who scheduled my appointment with the doctor was polite and was able to locate a time that best fit my schedule. The doctor was knowledgeable and was very helpful and understanding my concerns. He was able to locate the root cause of the pain I was having. Since the treatment, I feel much better. Thank you for taking care of me. Will use the clinic for sure If I need a foot doctor.

Donna Williams

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Zeno. I was a little bit nervous because I hadn't been to a Podiatrist in a long time. I had a big/ugly wart growing under my foot. The provider seemed to care about my issue. He removed it and wants to see me again to monitor the growth of my issue. And even stated to help it not keep reoccurring in the future. Thank you again. I was very pleased with the staff too. I will use this podiatric clinic If I need a foot doctor in the future.

He was a skilled and honest doctor. He treated the patient with sincerity and gave a detailed explanation of the pain. He was very patient with me and listened to all my concerns to find out what was best for me. The treatment he recommended helped my pain and now I can walk and run without pain. I recommend Dr. Zeno and Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists to anyone in the York area. Thanks again for being patient and kind during my visit and treatment sessions.

Jessica Harris

Dr. Zeno was great! As soon as I walked in he made me feel comfortable with some friendly conversation while I filled out my paperwork. He was patient but direct with his questioning about my injury, and most importantly, explained exactly what was wrong and why. Doctors don't always get into the why, so I appreciated that he did so I could understand my injury and future prevention. He was also very clear about what I needed to do as far as recovery and helped me plan out the right steps to take, which helped me feel reassured immediately. I would recommend Mid Penn Foot & Ankle Specialists to anyone!

Rebecca Lewis

I have finally found a good foot doctor! The office was nice and clean, the nurse was kind and helpful in getting me ready. I didn't have to wait to be called to a room and nor for the doctor to come in. Dr. Zeno was awesome! He explained everything to me and I felt confident about what was going on with my toe, the treatment, and when it will heal. I will refer other people to him:):) Thank you guys so much!

Tony Rosas

Dr. Zeno was very knowledgeable and helpful, I had to visit while I was here for work. I would fly back out to him if I ever had foot problems. He is so kind and great at his work.

John Cunningham

I came in for an ingrown toenail and Dr. Zeno did an amazing job. I have had this procedure done in the past but Dr.Zeno is hands down the best! And the clinic doesn’t overcharge while giving you a detailed overview of what you are paying for. Look no further this is the clinic you have been looking for! I would use this podiatry clinic if I need foot treatment. I will keep their contact information to use in the future if I need a foot doctor again.
