Vascular Procedure Results
BJC Medical Group of Illinois Vascular Surgeon Dr. Patrick Neville discusses how quickly patients can expect to see results after a vascular procedure.
How soon do patients notice results after a procedure?
Usually patients notice results right away. A lot of it depends on the degree or severity of their disease. Some people have such extensive blockages in their legs that they can go on to develop gangrene. That can be a real threat to limb loss, and they could go on to require an amputation. Oftentimes, we do procedures to really preserve limbs and make wound healing a real potential in these patients. But for people who have pain with exertion, they will notice an immediate effect.
