The Center for Fitness & Health at Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center is pleased to now offer peripheral artery disease (PAD) rehabilitation—the first rehab program of its kind in the region.
In this medically monitored fitness program, patients will work with a team of nurses and exercise physiologists who will tailor a program based on the patient’s medical history and goals.
