Event Discusses Removal of Varicose Veins

78620306

Darkened, enlarged veins in the legs are more than just a cosmetic problem. Often, they are a symptom of an underlying medical condition and a cause of pain.

“If you have tired, achy legs, swelling that slows you down, or unsightly veins on your legs, you might have a problem with varicose veins,” says John C. Wiggans, MD, FACS, vascular and thoracic surgeon at Saint Francis Medical Center’s Vein and Laser Center.

The Vein and Laser Center offers a minimally invasive outpatient procedure to eliminate varicose veins using the revolutionary CoolTouch CTEV™ laser.
