People suffering from skin ulcers on the lower leg have often suffer for years because underlying vein disease is never considered as a possible source of the problem. Dr. Hamilton and Hamilton Vein patient, Gary Eubank, discuss with Great Day Houston host, Deborah Duncan, Gary’s decades-long battle with reoccurring skin ulcers, his initial reluctance to come in for vein treatment due to the misconception that vein stripping is how veins are still treated (they’re not!), and his amazement when the minimally invasive vein treatments he has undergone have cleared up his vein disease. Now his ulcers are shrinking and eventually will be gone for good — it’s no wonder Mr. Eubank has more snap in his step these days!
