    CLOGGED ARTERIES POSE MAJOR HEALTH RISKS

    CLOGGED ARTERIES POSE MAJOR HEALTH RISKS   Lake Wales, FL – As September brings a change in seasons, it’s also Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Awareness month, and a good time to evaluate your risk for PAD.   Dr. Snehal Patel, a vascular surgeon who also treats patients at The Wound Healing Center at Lake Wales Medical Center, says that PAD develops when the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to the arms and legs become completely or partially blocked as a result of plaque buildup.
