Vein Center of Southwest Louisiana Offering Free Screenings in May

Lake Charles, La. — Vein Center of Southwest Louisiana is offering free vein screenings throughout May, by appointment, at their office located at 711 Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive in Lake Charles.

“Many people mistakenly think their leg pain and varicose veins are just normal part of aging, or a simple cosmetic problem, but these may be signs of a more serious, underlying vascular condition,” says Dr. Carl Fastabend, founder and medical director of the Vein Center. Dr. Fastabend is the only full-time, comprehensive vein specialist in Louisiana. He provides minimally invasive, painless, outpatient treatment options for vein disorders that deliver excellent results in a short period of time.

Symptoms that could indicate a vein problem include leg pain, tired legs, swelling in legs and/or feet, leg cramps, skin changes, itching, restless legs, burning sensation, spider veins and varicose veins. Also, if you have a family history of vein conditions and if you sit or stand for long periods every day, you are at increased risk of developing a vein disorder.

Call (337) 312-VEIN for more information or to schedule your screening appointment.
