HFM to Host Varicose Vein Screening
A varicose vein screening will be held Thursday, September 17, from 4 – 7 p.m. at Holy Family Memorial Medical Center, 2300 Western Avenue, Manitowoc.
Varicose veins are swollen, twisted veins that you can see just under the surface of the skin. These veins usually occur in the legs, but can also form in other parts of the body. They can cause pain, blood clots, skin ulcers (sores), or other problems. If you have troubling varicose veins, a screening can help you determine if they are a serious problem.
The screening will be conducted by Dr. Milan Jordan of HFM General & Vascular Surgery. Each participant will have a brief consultation with Dr. Jordan and have a screening ultrasound for varicose veins. Cost of the screening is $10.00.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling (920) 320-6777. Space is limited.
