St. Francis offers heart healthy classes

INDIANAPOLIS — Leg pain can be a result of poor blood flow to the legs through the arteries, or it can be from poor blood flow back to the heart, causing enlarged or varicose veins.

Interventional cardiologist William Berg, M.D., who specializes in peripheral vascular disease for Franciscan Physician Network Indiana Heart Physicians, will discuss the blood flow to and from the legs, signs and symptoms of arterial or venous disease and treatment options available during an upcoming workshop.

Berg is the medical director at Franciscan St. Francis Health Heart Center and will lead a discussion titled “Ask the Doc” at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 26 at Highpoint Orchard, 3321 Old U.S. 421, Greensburg.
