PROVO, UT, June 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Vascular Disease Foundation found that roughly 20-25 million Americans suffer from the effects of varicose veins. In response, the Intermountain Vein Center is offering the public a free screening event to help detect early symptoms of venous disease in patients.
Varicose veins pose serious threats when left untreated, some of which cannot be seen. Varicose veins can cause pain, fatigue, swelling, and in some cases, can severely limit mobility. These effects can have a major impact on quality of life; however, there are ways to treat varicose veins.
"It's a serious condition and we see too many people that have waited too long to get treatment because they didn't understand their options," Ryan B. Nielsen, MD, explained.
Treatment options may seem out of reach, especially when concern over recovery times and insurance coverage surface, but Intermountain Vein Center continues to provide help to those suffering from varicose veins. The doctors at Intermountain Vein Center have started a movement to educate patients and they are now offering a free public screening to anyone experiencing varicose vain symptoms.
"Our free public screening event is a great way for people to determine if their vein disease needs medical attention," Ryan B. Nielsen, MD, said. "We are happy to offer this service to the community."
The important thing for patients to remember is that the doctors at Intermountain Vein Center are experienced in applying industry-leading procedures such as laser and/or radio frequency ablation to rid the body of problematic veins.
Concerns surrounding recovery time and cost of treatment can be silenced by the Intermountain Vein Center. On average, procedures last 1-2 hours and patients can resume most daily activities immediately. Expenses are covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare. Patients who do not have insurance are eligible for free screening and discount treatment plans.
There is no need to continue to let varicose veins hinder the lives of those suffering from venous disease. Intermountain Vein Center has over a 95% success rate and leaves most patients wishing they had sought out help sooner.
The Intermountain Vein Center has become one of the leading vein centers in the United States and uses the most up-to-date technology in an effort to provide their patients with the best care and treatment.
