Physician consultation, and physician or mid-level provider follow-up visits.
Centric Peripheral Arterial Disease & Advanced Limb Preservation Clinic
What is Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) and what causes it?
PAD is a common circulatory problem where narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your arms or legs (usually your legs). This narrowing prevents your legs from receiving enough blood flow to keep up with demands. PAD is often caused by atherosclerosis where fatty deposits (cholesterol plaques) build up in your artery wall and reduce blood flow. PAD may also be a sign of more widespread narrowing of your arteries causing reduced blood flow to your heart and brain.
Critical limb ischemia (CLI) represents the most advanced stage of PAD with signs of pain in the leg at rest, bluish skin changes, non-healing wounds or ulcerations, or gangrene. Prompt restoration of blood flow has proven effective in preserving limbs and lives.
Patients with CLI are complex and require integrated multidisciplinary care. Centric Heart & Vascular is committed to deliver an integrated approach and provides most of these needed services under one roof.
Centric Wound Care Clinic
A chronic or non-healing wound is more than a bother—it carries serious health complications and risks such as pain and infection to disability and amputation. The Centric Wound Care Clinic manages complicated wound problems while maximizing your body’s natural ability to mend itself.
Our team of experienced specialists work with you and your physician to assess your symptoms, determine the cause of your non-healing wound, and customize the most effective treatment plan to stimulate healing. Our wound centers follow national evidence based guidelines when treating and managing wounds
Centric Chronic Venous Disease Clinic
Chronic venous disorders of the leg (CVDL) is an umbrella term that includes deep venous thrombosis (DVT), chronic venous insufficiency, and iliac vein compression syndrome. Symptoms of these venous disorders include leg swelling, pain, heaviness, varicose veins, inflammation of the skin, leg wounds or ulcers, and possibly restless leg syndrome. An integrated Centric Heart & Vascular Wound Clinic and Outpatient Cath Lab enables a timely delivery of diagnostic and therapeutic services needed to care for CVDL patients.
Centric Device Clinic (pacemakers/defibrillators)
The Centric Device Clinic provides ongoing follow-up care for patients with permanent pacemakers/cardiac defibrillators (ICDs). Centric performs complete evaluation of device function in order to customize settings to keep up with any changes in the patient’s condition. Reports are forwarded to the patient’s care providers. Patients are also provided ongoing telephone, internet, or cellular monitoring of device function.
Centric Coumadin Clinic
Certain cardiovascular conditions require ongoing treatment with blood thinners. In addition to providing standardized patient education and evaluation of ongoing treatment, Centric Heart & Vascular Coumadin Clinic provides comprehensive Coumadin (warfarin) management including, but not limited to:
- Routine monitoring and dosage adjustment.
- Management recommendations before and after a medical procedure.
- Risk/benefit evaluation for continued blood thinner therapy.
We also provide comprehensive education and counseling for the new blood thinners known as the direct-acting oral anticoagulants (DOAC).
Centric Advanced Heart Failure Clinic
Heart failure is a type of heart disease that occurs when the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. When this happens, important organs may not be able to function normally. Heart failure can develop because of another heart or medical condition that weakens the heart muscle, such as coronary artery disease or blocked arteries of the heart, and hypertension or high blood pressure, or a prior or recent heart attack.
Many people don’t know they have heart failure because the symptoms are mistaken for another condition. Without timely diagnosis and treatment, heart failure can lead to serious problems. These symptoms are:
- Fatigue or weakness
- Coughing or wheezing
- Swelling in the legs, ankles or stomach
- Difficulty breathing while lying down
- Shortness of breath during daily activities
- Reduced appetite and nausea
- Sudden weight gain
Centric Heart & Vascular offers today’s leading diagnostic tests and treatments for people with heart failure.
Our doctors are happy to offer second opinions to people with heart failure. Seeking a second opinion does not mean you don’t trust your doctor. It simply allows you to learn about the different ways your condition can be managed and treated. Our heart failure team takes pride in using the latest heart failure technology to develop customized solutions for each person. Our goal is to enhance your quality of life with your existing heart for as long as possible.
