Dr. Robert Dieter, a Loyola cardiologist and vascular specialist, talks about the seriousness of vein and artery blockages, which can lead to stroke and other events. A blockage in the leg can cause a variety of symptoms, including pain while walking or pain and numbness while resting. There have been significant advances in this field of medicine, such as minimally invasive treatments using catheters. Dr. Dieter loves helping patients who are in both advanced disease states and those who are just starting to have some vascular problems. It's great to see them get healthy again.
