Both men and women suffer from achy legs, which could indicate vascular disease (arteries and veins).
If you are experiencing heaviness in your legs, pain with walking, numbness, discoloration or varicose (bulging) veins, join our vascular experts for this FREE screening and dinner seminar.
Part 1: Vascular Screening
Before the presentation, participants can get screened for common vascular disorders, including carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The screenings are FREE, quick, non-invasive, and open to anyone over age 55 who smokes or has high blood pressure, diabetes, heart/leg ailments, a family history of heart disease, or prior stroke.
Part 2: Vascular Presentation
Following the vascular screenings, doctors will discuss the best way to identify problems and manage vascular-associated discomfort, provide valuable information about when leg pain could be serious, and discuss the latest on emerging treatments available right here in Western New York. A light dinner will be served.
