    If your legs feel heavy, experience swelling (edema), feel itchy, painful (outside of the joint pain from the need for joint replacement) or you can visibly see varicose veins – make an appointment for a FREE Vein Screening at www.weknowveins.com today. Venous insufficiency needs to be ruled out in order for you to get the best surgery results possible.

    If you are found to have venous issues, treatment will be recommended based on your personal case and situation. Once the veins are treated and your circulatory system is healthy and working properly having a hip or knee replaced will go far more smoothly with less risk of unexpected unwanted after effects.

    DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) is a risk with knee surgery. Ensuring your veins are in proper working order as well as the doctor recommending blood thinners on a temporary post-surgery basis can help lessen the risk.
