Valley Surgical, Aesthetics & Vein Care has scheduled a free varicose vein screening day.

The event is set for 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Nov. 18 at the practice, located at 2478 Patterson Road, Suite 4 in Grand Junction. To schedule an appointment for a screening or obtain other information, call 773-1946.

While varicose veins are often thought to pose only cosmetic  concerns, enlarged and twisted veins also pose health dangers, said Dr. Brad Case, owner of Valley Surgical, Aesthetics & Vein Care. “The goal is to treat the vein before it becomes a problem. As with most issues in life, the earlier you start to address them, the better the results will be.”
