NANTICOKE VEIN CENTER TO HOST FREE COMMUNITY SEMINAR

October 4, 2017

The Nanticoke Vein Center will hold a free community seminar on Monday, October 23 from 5 to 6 pm at Nanticoke’s Training Center located at 121 S. Front Street in Seaford. The seminar will feature a presentation on varicose veins and venous insufficiency by Dr. Arvind K. Gireesh of the Nanticoke Vein Center. This event is free and open to the public. RSVP is kindly requested.

Varicose veins develop through a combination of weakened vein walls and faulty valves. In a healthy vein, a small one-way valve opens allowing blood to flow upward as it moves toward the heart, then closes to prevent it from flowing backwards. When the valve fails, blood pools and pressure will build-up further weakening the valve and damaging the vein causing it to become twisted, enlarged and, sometimes, painful. The Nanticoke Vein Center provides safe, non-invasive treatments that can help.
