Roper St. Francis Heart & Vascular Center is proud to offer patients suffering from peripheral vascular disease, chronic wounds, and the more serious condition of critical limb ischemia, a comprehensive center dedicated to limb salvage. At the Center for Limb Salvage we eliminate layers between the patient and doctors so that care is provided in a coordinated efficient manner. What this means for you as a patient is that it is possible for you to see multiple doctors, receive appropriate diagnostic testing, and obtain a treatment plan in just one or two visits.
The Center for Limb Salvage is an accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Vascular Laboratories (ICAVL) and offers all forms of venous, arteria, and oxygen testing. ICAVL accreditation is recognized as certification that the Vascular Laboratory meets established standards of quality in vascular testing. Meeting or exceeding the nationally-recognized standards of quality, vascular testing at Roper St. Francis is done by trained and credentialed vascular technologists, using state-of-the-art ultrasound imaging and noninvasive vascular testing systems. Testing facilities are located within our patient treatment area and allows patients to receive testing, see a doctor, and obtain a treatment plan in one consolidated visit.
