Did you know that the underlying cause of varicose veins and heavy achy legs can be treated with a simple outpatient procedure-and that it may allow you to resume normal activity within one to two days?
Swedish Covenant Hospital is offering free 15-minute vein assessments to determine if you may benefit from this minimally invasive procedure. Participants are examined individually in a private environment.
This free screening is right for you if:
* You experience aching, cramping, burning, itching or swelling of the legs or ankles.
* You see varicose, reticular or spider veins on your legs.
* You were previously diagnosed with varicose veins, venous reflux or venous insufficiency.
