Because of the pain caused by peripheral artery disease (PAD), Will D. had for years been unable to work in his yard or enjoy a walk with his wife.

“I couldn’t probably walk a third or a quarter of a mile before I had to stop and rest,” he said.

That changed in July when Will D. underwent a new procedure called DETOUR. His treatment was administered by Mohammad “Mac” Ansari, M.D., director of structural and interventional cardiology research with the Texas Tech Physicians (TTP) Center for Cardiovascular Health.
