Cardiologist to lead free program about PAD on June 4

Cardiologist Govind Ramadurai, M.D., will present a free, educational program called “Learn About Leg Pain” from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 4, in Whitman Assembly Room 1 at Morris Hospital, 150 W. High Street in Morris.

During the program, Dr. Ramadurai will provide education on peripheral artery disease (PAD), a circulatory condition caused by the build-up of plaque in the leg arteries. The condition can lead to serious problems if left untreated.

One of the most common symptoms of PAD is leg pain that occurs during physical activity and stops with rest. The pain is most commonly felt in the calf, thigh, hip or buttocks and occurs because the blockage in the artery prevents the legs from receiving the proper blood flow to keep up with demand.

Along with pain, additional signs of PAD include hair loss on the legs or feet, smooth shiny skin on the legs, skin that is cool to the touch especially if accompanied by pain while walking, decreased or absent pulses in the feet, non-healing ulcers or sores on the legs or feet, a pale, bluish or reddish discoloration of the skin, and cold or numb toes.
