Monday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. in the MountainView Country Club Ballroom, SaddleBrooke Health and Wellness will host Dr. Miguel Montero-Baker, a vascular and endovascular surgeon at Pima Vascular.

Many Americans live with the pain and discomfort of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) thinking it is a normal part of aging. The problem is a result of cholesterol and scar tissue forming plaque in the arteries. Dr. Montero will discuss tips for early recognition of the symptoms and techniques to manage the condition. In addition to Dr Montero’s suggestions, you may also want to read more about Critical Limb Ischemia to better your knowledge on the disease. This can be useful to ensure that you understand the dangers of not contacting a medical service as soon as you spot a symptom, such as a foot wound that doesn’t seem to be healing.

Dr. Montero-Baker graduated with honors both from medical school and his residency in Vascular Surgery at the University of Costa Rica. After residency, he was awarded a DAAD (German Academic Exchange – Deutscher Akademischer Austach Dienst) scholarship to pursue his interest in interventional therapies in Leipzig, Germany. There he completed a peripheral vascular ultrasound fellowship and an advanced peripheral vascular interventions fellowship.

Driven by his passion for research and development of new diagnostic techniques for ischemic limbs, Dr. Montero-Baker completed an integrated Vascular Surgery residency program at the University of Arizona. Dr. Montero-Baker is a well-recognized opinion leader for the Latin American medical community and an active member of multiple scientific societies. His main clinical interests are critical limb ischemia and complex aortic pathology.
