“There are a lot of misconceptions about veins,” says Terri Morrison, R.N., co-owner of Morrison Vein Institute in Scottsdale, Ariz. “Often when people have large varicosities on their legs, at least they know they have venous disease. But sometimes even with large varicosities, there’s a misconception among family doctors and the general population that varicose veins are just a cosmetic problem or a normal part of aging. That’s not true. Venous disease is a disease, and usually it starts because of a problem that one inherits — weak vein valves or walls.” For Morrison Vein Institute, educating patients begins as soon as they call the office.

Terri Morrison was the co-founder of Morrison Vein Institute since 1995. Terri has spent the last 20 years as a vein care speaker on marketing, sclerotherapy and compression both nationally and internationally. She was an early activist for nursing in the ACP, Program and Section Chair of the Nursing Section, and co-authored the Fundamentals of Phlebology Nursing manual. Terri was also a Maricopa County burn unit, ICU and ER trauma nurse for over 22 years; marketing for 20 years; community college instructor; and piloted airplanes for 14 years before starting the vein business. Passionate is her favorite word. Passionate about her family including kids and grandkids, treating veins, compression (ACP delegate to the International Compression club), leading volunteer medical trips to South America, taking care of her office and colleagues for 21 years and travelling. Now I’ve started a new Consulting Company to help providers and patients learn Sclerotherapy, Compression stockings, garments, Velcro wraps for edematous legs. Also I lecture internationally on compression, marketing, and face- hand- leg- feet- chest vein Sclerotherapy. I travel to Vein clinics to teach hands on Sclerotherapy and Compression techniques.
