A Leg Up
The pain in Tewksbury resident Tom Schnorrenberg’s legs was agonizing. He and his Lawrence General vascular surgeon, Arthur (Chip) Gonsalves, MD, of Vascular and Vein Associates, had been monitoring his advancing peripheral artery disease for several years. By early spring 2017, the pain was severe enough to disrupt his sleep and made even short walks nearly impossible. The time had come, both agreed, to get the blood circulating freely to his legs again.
