Nurse Seeks Treatment for Aching, Heaviness & Swelling

Sex: Female

Age: 47

Occupation: Nurse

This 47-year-old nurse came in suffering from aching, tenderness, itching, heaviness, tiredness, and leg swelling. As a nurse, she worked long hours standing which only exasperated the condition. With a family history of both mother and grandmother suffering from venous disorders as well, it was no surprise that after 9 years of worsening symptoms,  she sought help at The Vein Institute.

Dr. Gardner and his staff examined, diagnosed and laid out a treatment plan for her that gave her back the spring in her step, helping her gain back the energy that her condition was robbing her of.
