Description

Vascular and Vein Center Offering Free Screenings for “Silent Killers” WHAT: The Vascular and Vein Center at Gulfcoast Surgeons is hosting a free Vein Screening event. The screening normally costs $99. It is a simple, non-invasive ultrasound scan that takes 15 minutes to complete and could save your life. WHERE: 24301 Walden Center Dr #102, Bonita Springs, FL 34134 WHEN: Saturday, April 17, 2021 10:00AM - Noon; Call for appointments: (239) 900-1782 WHY: Lifestyle Screenings will check for three “silent killers” lurking in your body: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA): The bulging arteries can rupture without warning and cause sudden death. Carotid Artery Disease (Stroke): A blockage in the carotid artery can cause small clots to form and break off into the bloodstream causing a stroke. Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD): Narrowing of the arteries in the arms and legs can decrease blood-flow and cause pain, infections, or wounds that could result in amputations. 40% of people with PAD are at risk of having a heart attack in five years. NOTES: The event will include a free breakfast and a short speech about veins from Dr. Sanders.
