Varicose veins, and smaller versions called spider veins, are abnormal, dilated blood vessels that often form in the legs. While just a cosmetic issue for many, in some cases these can lead to serious problems like blood clots or nonhealing wounds. Join Mindi Kasper, CNP, nurse practitioner in the Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute at University Hospitals St. John Medical Center, to learn about these common conditions and when to seek help from a specialist.

Participants will learn:

  • How varicose veins form
  • The potential dangers of not treating varicose veins
  • Latest therapy options, from lifestyle changes to minimally invasive procedures
  • What happens to blood flow after a vein is treated or removed

An audience question and answer segment is included.
