A presenter from the Center for Vein Restoration will educate attendees on venous insufficiency and go over the signs, symptoms, risk factors and treatment options of leg vein disease.
The presentation may also include lower leg vein demonstration to display proper blood flow using a portable ultrasound machine. Participants may become aware of symptoms they might not have known to be correlated to leg vein disease. For example, this condition can lead to tired, heavy, achy, and painful legs. Some with this problem may have bulging leg veins, leg swelling by the end of the day and lower leg ulcers. Individuals may fall into high risk categories for venous disease due to family history, lifestyle choices, and other factors. Join us for this free presentation to learn more and get answers to all your questions.
