What if your love of sports had to suddenly stop because of pain from vericose veins? This happened to 38 year old, Theo Karavangelas. He knew he had a problem because of constant discomfort in his legs.

Dr. Charles Dietzek, Vascular Surgeon and Vein Specialist, describes how a vein can malfunction. This causes the blood to go in the wrong direction. By removing the vein, it will enhance the circulation of the leg by allowing the blood flow to go in the right direction. Check out the video how he hopes this procedure will help him become active again and pain free.
