Irishman with Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) Finds Leg-, Life-Saving Treatment In Columbus, Ohio
Date:1/13/2009

If it wasn't for Bill Doherty's persistence to seek out the best treatment options available to him, he realizes he could be without a leg today. Bill's proactive efforts led him to revolutionary P.A.D. treatments taking place across the Atlantic at Riverside Methodist Hospital, in Columbus, Ohio, where a team of experts used an advanced procedure to save his limb. During the minimally invasive procedure, they also found and opened a major artery supplying blood to his heart that was 85 percent blocked, potentially saving his life in the process.

When he saw his doctor in Ireland, he was diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease (P.A.D.), caused by fatty build-up collecting along the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the limbs. Tests revealed a 20-centimeter blockage in Bill's leg.

PAD Facts

A 52-year old avid golfer and busy executive, he wasn't done using his leg, he says. Dissatisfied with the treatment options presented by his doctors in Ireland, Bill set out to find the best treatment option for him. After talking with some friends and doing his own research, Bill learned about the advanced treatments taking place across the ocean at
