Healthy Veins, Healthy Life Event

Often considered a cosmetic concern, varicose veins can cause aching, pain, itching, a sensation of heaviness, and even greater health complications. Management requires proper, in-depth evaluation to assess the location and extent of venous valve dysfunction. It all begins with a simple examination by a vein care physician.

If you have tired, swollen or painful legs, plan now to attend “Healthy Veins, Healthy Life,” a free leg-screening event. UT Southwestern’s interventional radiologists will be on hand to discuss treatment options, including the latest advances in minimally invasive procedures. Participants can undergo a private, 5-minute ultrasound examination to determine blood vessel shape and size, as well as blood flow characteristics.

If you are a candidate for new, minimally invasive technologies to treat your condition, a follow-up appointment for a more extensive evaluation can be scheduled on site.
