Free Vein Education Session October 13
September 30, 2022
The Vein Center at Haywood Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is holding a free vein education session on Thursday, October 13 from 5 - 6 p.m. Dr. Al Mina, MD, FACS and Dr. Joshua Rudd, DO will lead the session. Interested community members are asked to register for by calling 800.424.DOCS (3627). Space is limited; RSVP required.
“Whether you know you might need a vein treatment or just want to learn more, this is an ideal event for learning and questions” said Dr. Al Mina, a board-certified surgeon who performs the outpatient procedures. “Plus, the end of the year – with insurance deductibles and potentially holiday time off – is a great time to explore procedures you’ve been avoiding,” said Mina.
If you suffer from one of the following conditions, this free event may help:
- Leg swelling
- Skin discoloration and thickening
- Aching, cramping or burning pain in the legs
- Varicose veins
- Restless legs
- Numbness or tingling in the legs
Over 40 million Americans suffer daily with painful, swollen legs as a result of what is known as venous disease or problems with veins in the legs. Left untreated, this condition only worsens over time. The treatment for this disorder is a minimally-invasive procedure called endovenous thermal ablation. Community members can learn more about what causes this disease and its treatment this fall. To RSVP, call 800.424.DOCS (3627).
