BA Dr Deol

Patient Concerns

Chris N. is a 59-year-old male elementary school custodian who was worried about his progressive leg swelling and skin changes. He presented at the Oregon, Ohio location of Center for Vein Restoration.

Patient was diagnosed with chronic venous hypertension with pre-ulcerative changes. His varicose veins were worse in the right leg and his pre-ulcerative changes were worse in the left leg.

Treatments Provided

  • Radiofrequency ablation of bilateral leg great saphenous vein (GSV)
  • Phlebectomy of right leg varicose veins
  • Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy of refluxing tributaries in both legs
  • Daily compression stocking use


After treatment with Dr. Deol, patient reports “My life has changed in that I wear shorts quite often now and have noticed reduced swelling in my ankles. My confidence has definitely increased in regard to how my legs now look.”

Patient Quote

“I sought help for my legs because of the swelling of my ankles and how they looked. I was not comfortable with how the varicose veins looked when I wore shorts.

My experience with your office from the start. Let's see, I was very impressed with how thorough the initial exam was and how quick the process was from the moment I hit the door. I was immediately greeted by the front office and barely had the paperwork completed when they took me back for the initial exam. They answered all of my questions and put me at ease.”
