Treating Venous Insufficiency Syndrome with Dee White

At The Heart Podcast

The vein and vascular system is an amazing network that works like a mechanical valve to keep blood flowing through the body. However, several things can occur to interfere with that circulation, leading to venous insufficiency syndrome. This happens when the leg veins are not working as they should and making it difficult for blood to reach the heart from the legs. Regardless of your occupation, whether you’re on your feet all day or sitting at desk, you could be at risk. Join us as we talk with Dee White, nurse practitioner and clinical director for the Vein & Vascular Institute, to learn more about the symptoms of venous insufficiency and how it can be treated.
