FREE Varicose Vein Screening & Education Session
April 25 ? 5:00 to 7:30pm
Monticello, Minnesota, April 12, 2013?Varicose veins affect half of people over 50 years of age and can cause aching, throbbing and discomfort. ?Many people suffer from leg pain, swelling, and heaviness in the legs,? says John Hering, MD, family medicine physician at the Medical Skin Care Center of Buffalo Clinic. ?In addition to being uncomfortable, some varicose veins can become more serious if they are not treated.
?Previously, patients were treated with a vein removal procedure called vein stripping, which was painful and had a long recovery time,? continued Dr. Hering. ?Now, there are techniques like the Venefit procedure that involve less pain, good cosmetic results and an easy recovery with most patients resuming normal activities in one to two days.?
