Microvascular Reconstruction of Legs, Feet, & Toes (Ischemic Extremities)
All parts of our body need blood flow to survive. But, our lower extremities (legs, feet, and toes) lose blood flow more often than other parts of our body. Traumatic injuries to the blood vessels in our lower extremities can cause blood flow loss called ischemia. Blood clots also prevent blood from flowing through our blood vessels.
To prevent blood flow loss, surgeons reconstruct injured blood vessels and remove clots that form inside them. In conjunction with our colleagues in vascular surgery, our surgical team can help improve blood flow.
