Leading West Michigan Interventional Cardiologists Form New Practice

Grand Rapids, Michigan, July 16, 2018 – Leading West Michigan interventional cardiologists Dr. Jihad Mustapha and Dr. Fadi Saab have partnered to launch Advanced Cardiac & Vascular Amputation Prevention Centers in Grand Rapids.

Widely known as “The Leg Savers,” they have been joined by Dr. Syed Alam, a leading vascular surgeon from Kalamazoo, and Elizabeth Sayers, physician assistant, to provide highly personalized and comprehensive cardiac, vascular and vein care. Supported by a passionate team of health care providers, ACV Centers has a special concentration on treating peripheral artery disease, or PAD, and the complications of critical limb ischemia, or CLI.

Mustapha and Saab, who are also uncle-nephew, have a combined 22 years of practice saving hundreds of feet and legs from amputation. They utilize advanced tools – some of which they have invented – to remove blockages from arteries, returning blood flow and improving circulation.

Their new practice, which is located at 1525 E. Beltline Ave. NE in Grand Rapids, began accepting patients in February.

“Our mission is simple: We want to heal patients who receive the devastating news that they may lose a limb,” Mustapha explained. “For the past decade, I have been privileged to focus my practice on developing successful interventions for PAD and CLI, helping restore circulation while preventing amputations.

“We wanted the opportunity to create a space where we can provide medical care that saves limbs – and lives – and puts our patients back in control of their health. Establishing ACV Centers allows us to provide highly personalized care to each patient, giving us the time we need to focus on our patients with vascular issues.”

ACV physicians partner with primary care providers, podiatrists and wound care professionals to treat all aspects of cardiac and vascular health.

Using leading-edge technology and tools – some of which have been pioneered by Mustapha – ACV physicians regularly perform the full spectrum of endovascular cardiac and endovascular and surgical vascular procedures.
