Valley Surgical, Aesthetics & Vein Care in Grand Junction has scheduled a free varicose screening day.

The event is set for 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Jan. 21 at 2478 Patterson Road, Suite 4. For an appointment or more information, call 773-1946.

While varicose veins are often thought to pose only cosmetic concerns, enlarged and twisted veins also pose such health problems as swelling, pain, blood clots and ulcers, said Dr. Brad Case, owner of Valley Surgical, Aesthetics & Vein Care. “The goal is to treat the vein before it becomes a problem.”
