For area residents experiencing leg discomfort, swelling and varicose veins, Greater Regional Medical Center will offer a free vein screening clinic 5 to 7 p.m. Aug 19. The Greater Regional Vein Clinic is a service line being offered in coordination with Heather Osterbrink, MD general surgeon at Greater Regional Medical Center and features state of the art vein care locally.

Approximately 25 million Americans suffer from venous disease, a condition which often results in varicose veins and other painful symptoms. These symptoms can significantly impact a person’s lifestyle. The vein clinic offers a minimally invasive alternative to traditional vein stripping for patients with superficial venous reflux, an underlying cause of varicose veins.

To learn more and to pre-register, call 641-782-3828.
