Imagine waking up one day and realizing you can’t move your limbs properly. Your doctor tells you it’s because your blood vessels have constricted and aren’t supplying sufficient blood to your limbs, and amputation might be necessary. Sounds terrifying, right? Thanks to the tireless work of Dr. Pedro Mego, an interventional cardiologist with a particular interest in Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) and Chronic Venous Diseases, patients now have a chance to prevent such a scenario. With more than 18 years of experience in the field, Dr. Mego has dedicated his life to improve the circulation in the legs saving patients’ limbs, helping wounds to heal and enhancing their life expectancy.
Minimal yet effective treatments
Dr. Mego’s approach to treating PAD strikes a perfect balance between invasive and non-invasive treatment options, offering quick recovery and lessening the physical burden on patients. His strategy is driven by the belief that treatment should focus on managing symptoms and ensuring the patient’s well-being.
Harnessing innovative technology
Dr. Mego uses the latest and most innovative technologies to treat patients, often in an outpatient setting. This significantly reduces the need for overnight hospital stays and accelerates recovery. Patients can return to their daily lives in a much shorter period, making the treatment process more bearable and convenient.

He has designed the Mission Vascular & Vein Institute, a facility specifically aimed at treating patients with PAD and various venous diseases and reducing the risk of limb amputation.
