It’s a miracle!!! – was my reaction as I looked at my legs upon awakening the morning after my procedure. The swelling in my legs and feet was gone. I had not seen them look normal for almost two years and I was elated. I could hardly wait to tell the doctor and his staff. Sure, I was skeptical of a phlebectomy at first. I had never heard of it, I was afraid of the unknown but I was desperate. Dr. Tonnessen and his staff explained everything, and I had total confidence in them. I experienced everything he said I would – a pinch, some glue, no stitches and a band aid. I drove myself to and from the institute and even went to the gym that day for my daily workout. I highly recommend.
