Introduces Peripheral Arterial Disease Walking Program

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (November 12, 2014) – Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian is thrilled to welcome Dr. Ehab N. Mady as medical director for the Vascular Services Program of the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart and Vascular Institute. An accomplished physician who specializes in vascular medicine, Dr. Mady’s training and expertise are in the non-invasive vascular laboratory and medical management of vascular disease.

As medical director for the Vascular Services Program, he has introduced and helped launch the Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) Supervised Walking Exercise Program. The only hospital with a comprehensive program in Orange County, Hoag offers medical therapies, surgical interventions and in addition the new supervised exercise walking program that helps to reduce cardiovascular events, improve quality of life and reduce limb loss from PAD. Monitored by a trained registered nurse and an exercise physiologist, patients going through the PAD Supervised Walking Program undergo medical assessments during each of their one-hour visits, three days per week. Their progress is meticulously monitored over six months.

"We are honored to have Dr. Mady lead the Vascular Services Program. His experience in internal and vascular medicine brings innovation to our state-of-the-art cardiac care facilities,” says Tom Lonergan, executive operations director of the Jeffrey M. Carlton Heart and Vascular Institute. "The PAD Walking Program is just one example of the services Dr. Mady is developing to improve each patient’s overall quality of life.”
