News & Events


  • Prevailing over PAD: Jim's Story

    Jim O’Brien started to experience pain in his legs and difficulty walking, even short distances. He visited Dr. Douglas Drachman at Mass General, who diagnosed him with peripheral artery disease (PAD). While treating Jim for PAD, Mass General found and diagnosed him with liver cancer. The team of doctors collaborated closely to balance the treatment of both diseases.
