Podiatrist Dr. Christopher Calcagni has advanced training and experience with diabetic limb salvage and PADnet testing, which is an integral part of his wound care services. As a regular part of his practice, Dr. Calcagni sees patients every week.
What Is PADnet?
Detection for Peripheral Artery Disease
PADnet is the market leader in the early detection of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD), which occurs when cholesterol and plaque build up in the arteries of the lower extremities, decreasing blood flow to the legs and feet. As a result of poor circulation, wound fail to heal and, if left untreated, can lead to serious foot and leg conditions. The PADnet system detects blockages in arteries and the quality of blood flow using Pulse Volume Recordings and segmental blood pressure measurements. This enables timely and cost-effective delivery of care that optimizes patient outcomes.
Dr. Calcagni provides effective treatments for non-healing wounds, traumatic injuries, and complex fractures that involve the foot and ankle. For severe injuries, Dr. Calcagni can also provide foot and ankle surgery.
