If you experience discomfort, swelling and varicose veins in your legs, you may be suffering from superficial venous reflux disease. Approximately 25 million people in the United States suffer from this condition. Factors contributing to the presence of venous reflux disease include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Family history
  • Multiple pregnancies
  • Obesity
  • Standing profession

Traditionally, patients diagnosed with venous reflux would undergo vein stripping surgery. Now, patients at Virginia Mason in Seattle can be treated with the VNUS® Closure® procedure — a minimally invasive and more comfortable alternative to painful vein stripping surgery.

Virginia Mason cardiothoracic surgeons will perform free screenings for this minimally invasive procedure on Monday, June 29 from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at Virginia Mason in Seattle. This screening is right for you if you experience:

  • Varicose veins
  • Leg pain
  • Swollen limbs
  • Leg heaviness and fatigue
  • Skin changes and skin ulcers

If you experience any of these symptoms, call (206) 254-VEIN or (206) 254-8346 to schedule your free screening appointment. Appointments are limited, so call today.
