Joan's Story

Although Joan was going to wait until after she and her husband were finished having children to seek treatment for varicose veins, the discomfort became unbearable. Her job in a busy clinic contributed to the problem. After spending most of the day on her feet, Joan began to suffer from throbbing, heavy, aching legs.

Rather than waiting until she was older, Joan, age 24, decided to seek treatment at Iowa Vein Center. The physicians at Iowa Vein Center recommended VNUS® Closure, an outpatient procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to collapse and seal veins.

One day after the procedure, Joan was back at work, and it wasn’t long after that she could get to the end of the day without feeling the need to elevate her feet the entire night. Today, Joan reports having more energy and better looking legs.
