Fox 10 Interview of Dr Morrison

Fox 10 was at our office interviewing Dr Morrison and a patient of ours about CoolTouch Laser to treat veins. Thanks to TV and social media, patients can learn about new therapies to treat their veins.

In the last 2 years, the FDA has approved a New Foam  called Varisolve ( Varithena) for treating venous insufficiency, in other words a way to treat or close the leaking, saphenous veins that used to be stripped out! This isn’t used for the surface, cosmetic, skin veins that we can see. This replaces  therapies like laser or radio frequency ablation or MOCA, Clarivein type procedures.

The other approved last November is VenaSeal, Closure by Medtronic.                                  ( This procedure is the only non thermal, non- tumescent, non-sclerosant procedure that uses a proprietary adhesive delivered by a doctor using their kit to deliver in the saphenous vein, to close the veins with faulty valves. Patients who fear anesthetic, heat, pain etc will prefer this method and if this is the only treatment needed, the patient won’t need compression stockings that day and may return to work or play.

Do Your Legs Feel HEAVY?

Do you suffer from heavy, tired legs? After you exercise, do you fee like you are dragging weights around your ankles when you walk? These are all symptoms of vein disease, which can be treated. If your legs are achy, heavy, tired, restless, and/or swollen, you may have a medical problem. Seek help from a vein doctor, aka Phlebologist. Vein specialists diagnose and treat all types of veins and vein disease.

After treatment, one of our patients at Morrison Vein Institute verbalizes, “I feel like the ankle weights I have been wearing have been removed. My legs do not have the heaviness anymore. I feel free and light on my feet. Thank you for giving me my life back.” What a great feeling to have a new lease on life! Thanks Amy for your testimonial.

No More Leg Cramps

We received a wonderful personal note from a shocked patient about her legs. So I thought I would share it with you…

Ginger writes “Dr Morrison, My procedure on my veins was January 22nd in your office. Upon removing my compression stockings after the treatment, I was shocked to see normal legs! I don’t have discoloration on my legs anymore. Today is February 1st and I am still in disbelief, that I have legs that remain normal looking. I am so grateful to you that the initial problem in my legs has been corrected; I DON’T HAVE any more LEG CRAMPS! Also, I am so surprised my legs look NORMAL again. Forever Grateful, Ginger.”

It is so nice for patients with terrible symptoms and unsightly legs to have NORMAL again! Having your veins treated reduces or eliminates symptoms of fatigue, swelling, cramping, aching, heaviness, and/or restless leg. Seek help from a doctor who specializes in Phlebology, which is the study of veins and vein disease.

VNUS Closure YouTube Video for Varicose Veins

I came across a great video on YouTube that explains the VNUS Closure procedure for venous reflux, aka vein disease.  So I thought I would share it with you. If you have leg pain or swelling, ankle veins, restless leg, discoloration or tired heavy feeling in your legs, you should seek help from a Phlebologist. A doctor who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of veins and vein disease is called a Phlebologist.


Great Legs! Great Patients!

A couple came to see us because the man had heavy tired aching legs and could barely tolerate the pain after their daily walk. When they were in for their initial consult, the wife asked if we could do anything about her restless legs. Come to find out, they both have vein disease and we helped them! No more restless leg, or tired heavy aching feeling! They are feeling great and sent us an e-mail of appreciation, which they said I could share…

“We have been walking every morning as directed. We came home to Havasu yesterday from your office & the trip was fine. We stopped several times to walk around a bit & took turns driving. This A.M. when we walked on our neighborhood hilly streets, Al said he felt better than he had in years. I was so glad to hear that! We are both fine.

We really appreciate you & all the other extremely nice people in your office. We have never experienced Doctors, nurses & office staff who are so nice. We are spreading the word in Lake Havasu. One friend said we should have taken a video of your office & taken it around to most of the doctor’s offices in Havasu for a learning tool as most could really use the training you could provide for them! Ha!

We are trying to get my Mom (who will be 88 in Oct.) to get her internal varicose vein taken care of as it is really hurting her a lot of times.  Today she finally told Al she might ask her doctor if he will give her a referral.  She has always told her Doctor it didn’t bother her even though it really does.  She doesn’t want to admit to any pain.  Her legs are so swollen it is pathetic.  She always tells us it is because of the weather!”

Thank you Al and Jill for the kind words! We are so glad your legs feel great. More info at

Do I Have Vein Disease?

Do you have pain in your legs? Do your legs feel restless or tired at the end of the day? Do you have varicose veins on your legs? Do you have swollen ankles or feet? Do you have spider veins around your ankles? Do you have ulcers or a blood clot?

If you answered yes to one or more of the above questions, you should seek help from a vein doctor, because those are common symptoms of vein disease. A vein specialist, aka Phlebologist, can diagnose and treat your veins, so you don’t have to live with the pain or the veins on your legs.

Find a doctor who is a Diplomate in Phlebology. This will ensure that they have had the proper training in veins and vein disease. Don’t rely on medication or natural remedies to ease the pain. Why just put a bandage on it, when you could treat the cause and relieve the symptoms for good? Have your veins treated today, you and your health are worth it.

Men’s Compression Socks

Did you know that compression stockings are made for men too? Whether you call them stockings or socks, they have compression in all styles for men too. You can wear them to exercise or under slacks to work. If you are suffering from swollen ankles, restless leg, cramps or ulcers, you should try compression socks. They will make your legs feel a lot better than they do right now. We sell all types of men’s compression socks at Morrison Vein Institute. Our RN’s are custom hose fitters and can measure you, so the socks fit appropriately. Call us at 866-GRT-LEGS for more info.
