What You Need to Know About Peripheral Vascular Disease
For many patients, vascular conditions and chronic wounds affecting the legs and feet can be related. Coordinated care at Southwest Healthcare System can provide the comprehensive treatment approach that is needed. An example is peripheral artery disease (PAD), which occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries and restricts blood flow to the legs. If left untreated, PAD can cause pain in the legs and lead to wounds that do not heal. In severe cases, PAD may lead to amputation and also increase your risk of heart disease. Listen as Yara Gorski, MD, Vascular Surgeon, discusses the importance of vascular health to help combat Peripheral Vascular Disease and when to know if surgery is necessary.

Minimally Invasive Urologic Robotic Surgery
Surgeons at Rancho Springs Medical Center were the first in the region to use the da Vinci® Surgical System. This advanced robotic platform allows doctors to perform complex procedures using smaller incisions than standard surgery with tiny, precision tools operated robotically. This may result in less pain, scarring, trauma and blood loss than other surgical procedures so that patients can potentially return to work and daily activities more quickly. In this segment, Dr. Richard Conner discusses how da Vinci® robotic surgery at Rancho Springs has helped our patients to return to the activities they enjoy sooner and with less pain.

Help for Non Healing Wounds
Millions of people suffer needlessly from chronic, non-healing wounds — such as those caused by diabetes, poor circulation, injuries and other conditions.

The Inland Valley Wound Care Program offers advanced treatment options for chronic wounds. Listen as Dr. Mazin Khateeb, MD, the Medical Director of Wound Care at Southwest Healthcare System, discusses non healing wounds and when you should consult a specialist to achieve the best possible healing outcomes.
