Peripheral artery disease care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

A team of vascular specialists, vascular and endovascular surgeons, cardiologists, and other professionals work together to provide exactly the care you need at Mayo Clinic. Each Mayo Clinic location offers a vascular center staffed by doctors and other specialists trained in vascular diseases.

Having all of this subspecialized expertise in a single place, focused on you, means that you're not just getting one opinion — your care is discussed among the team members. Appointments are scheduled in coordination and your test results are available quickly, allowing cardiovascular specialists with expertise in your condition to work together to determine the most appropriate treatment for you.

This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.
