Saving Limbs and Lives with a Team Approach

This content is sponsored by UPMC.

At UPMC Passavant, vascular surgeons are teaming up with other specialists to reduce amputations through a coordinated limb salvage program.

 

Janet Collins loves the outdoors. Her greatest joys are riding horses and zipping around her 20-acre Mercer County farm on her utility terrain vehicle (UTV). But complications from diabetes and hypertension led to the development of peripheral artery disease (PAD) — a circulatory problem that narrows the arteries and reduces blood flow. That led to the amputation of Janet’s lower left leg in 2019.
