At the Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute, we want our community to have a healthy future. As Alaska’s preeminent provider of cardiovascular care, we are committed to making sure that quality care is available to all Alaskans and to continuously improving the quality of that care.
Screening for Peripheral Arterial Disease
Pain in the legs is often dismissed as a sign of aging or arthritis, but it can be an indicator of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The Alaska Heart & Vascular Institute offers reduced-cost screenings at all of our locations, including our outreach clinics.
The “Alaska Heart Beat Blog” is dedicated to informing patients about numerous areas of cardiovascular health and prevention. It primarily focuses on the importance of being screened for cardiovascular disease and the risk factors associated with it, as well as information about varicose veins and venous insufficiencies.
