Florida Hospital Wauchula Hosts “Health Connection” PAD & CLI Vascular Health Lecture

Thomas M. Shimshak, MD, board certified interventional cardiologist and Medical Director of the Florida Hospital’s Heart & Vascular Center, presents an informational free vascular lecture for anyone suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD) or chronic limb ischemia (CLI).

PAD affects nearly 20 million people.  Symptoms can include pain, shiny smooth skin, non-healing sores, and pain or numbness of legs or feet.  The presence of PAD reduces quality of life and increases the risk for major cardiovascular events and death.  Understanding PAD can improve your quality of life, reduce the risk of amputation and improve survival.

This one-hour free presentation begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, January 18, at Florida Hospital Wauchula, 735 South 5th Avenue, Wauchula, in the second floor Mildred Carlton Conference Room.  Attendees with a prior diagnosis of PAD/CLI may qualify and register for a free second opinion with Dr. Shimshak.  Please call the Florida Hospital Helpline at (863) 402-3627 to register and reserve your seat.
