“I try to keep in shape as much as I can and now my legs can keep up with me!”
Diann assets she had problems with painful varicose veins in her legs for many years. She had her 1st vein stripping about 10 years ago. She claims, however, the veins would continue to come back. She found that her legs became more and more scarred from the continuous treatments. Further, she continued to experience pain and discomfort.
Finally, she found Dr. Dietzek who told her about the VNUS Closure® procedure and micro-phlebectomy. She had one leg treated in the hospital with the VNUS Closure procedure under twilight anesthesia. Her 2nd leg was treated at Dr. Dietzek’s office with the VNUS Closure procedure under local anesthesia. She explains that during the procedures, she could feel that her legs were being worked on, but claims she experienced no pain.
Diann says that her experience with the VNUS Closure procedure was so smooth that the following day she was on the elliptical trainer at the gym. While she did experience a little tenderness in her leg, she explains she was able to complete a moderate workout.
Diann claims she is no longer experiencing pain in her legs. The best part for her, she explains, is that she does not expect to have to undergo any more procedures for her legs. As a substitute teacher who is on her feet all day, Diann is happy to find she is now much more comfortable. She feels the VNUS Closure procedure has taken care of all her leg vein problems.
