MidMichigan Health’s specialized PAD Program is dedicated to the advanced management and treatment of peripheral artery disease (PAD). PAD is a life threatening condition caused by the narrowing of the arteries in the legs. Fatty buildup, called plaque, clings to the artery walls, restricting blood flow in the legs.
