“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.
