Reno resident Honor Jones knew she was genetically predisposed for varicose veins. And as the primary caregiver for her husband, she is on her feet much of the time, and hadn’t given the condition any thought until her legs started to ache and feel heavy. She sought the help of General Surgeon Wynter Phoenix, MD, at Northern Nevada Medical Center, who treats varicose veins.

Honor, who has a medical background, says the Venefit® procedure Dr. Phoenix performed was very sophisticated. While the procedure requires no downtime, Honor notes that you must follow your physician’s advice to get good results. “I did not realize how heavy my legs felt until I had this done,” she says. “Now my legs feel great and I have no pain or pressure.” Honor advises that patients with varicose veins get them checked sooner rather than later.

In describing her experience at Northern Nevada Medical Center, Honor says the services offered are impressive. “This facility is the best. The outpatient surgery was a simple procedure, and within two hours, I was on my way home. I am thrilled with my results and recommend Dr. Phoenix and Northern Nevada Medical Center to anyone with this condition.”
