Avondale Interventional Cardiologist, Dr. Riyaz Sumar with IMS Cardiology is notably one of the first providers in the western region of America (And the first in Arizona) to perform a full radial access procedure through peripheral orbital atherectomy device to treat Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).  


Dr. Sumar explains the device as a “[something about how the device worked, what it does for the patients, the benefits of the procedure and how it benefits them]”


 PAD is the narrowing of the peripheral arteries to the legs, stomach, arms and head- most commonly in the arteries in the legs but with the Radial Access Procedure with the FDA approved device, Dr. Sumar was able to successfully treat his patient and “blaze the trail” for other providers to follow in the ever-progressing treatment of this disease.    



“I am so pleased with the outcome of your patients radial approach, peripheral orbital atherectomy procedure this morning. I believe this is the first procedure with this device in Arizona and perhaps the west coast... Thank you for the opportunity to partner with you on this new technology.” – Tim Willhite District Sales Manager with CSI  


“Congratulations to you and your staff for blazing the trail with the new Radial device. I am thrilled that your patient was the first in the West to have a full peripheral procedure successfully completed through the wrist and in an outpatient setting. I look forward to what this device and approach can offer to more patients in the future.” – Laine Wooldridge, MBA, Regional Manager, CSI
