Tells Us About His Experience With Tampa Board Certified Vascular Surgeon, Dr. Thomas Kerr
John had noticed varicose veins forming on his legs and was experiencing fatigue and leg cramping in the area. He also had concerns about the possibility of developing blood clots in his varicose veins.
He had varicose vein removal at The Vein and Vascular Institute, performed by board certified vascular surgeon Dr. Thomas Kerr.
John is impressed by how the laser vein treatment performed by Dr. Kerr left his leg as good as new, free of varicose veins and free of scars.
John's Testimonial About Dr. Thomas Kerr
“I first noticed with my leg I had a lot of pack of veins behind my right leg and running down my calf. And then eventually I started getting fatigue in the leg and some cramp and pain in the leg.
So I went on the internet and I researched a vein and vascular doctor and who would be the best and I came across Dr. Kerr who is Board Certified and seemed like the best one to go to. So, I went and made an appointment with him and checked him out and I was very satisfied.
When I went to see Dr. Kerr, they did an ultrasound on both my legs actually and they checked to make sure the other leg was good. And then they recommended getting the laser surgery.
So, then, I think it was a couple of weeks later, we had the surgery. After a day or two after the surgery, the swelling went down, and actually, a couple of days after that, I was actually riding the bike again.
The recovery time was very quick, I was very impressed. Everything came out good.
The best part about it was my insurance covered it, so that made a big deal. That also helped me go for the surgery too, that was a good deal.
One of the main reasons why I got the surgery too is because my sister was worried about getting blood clots. And she said that you could get blood clots in your leg. And I had a cousin flying into California and he got a blood clot in his leg, and really, he got really messed up over it. So, that was one of my main reasons.
And also, now that I have the varicose vein removal surgery done, I don’t get any pain, any cramps in the leg, nothing, I feel great. It’s like, my right leg is better than my left leg. I don’t know how that is, but it’s good.
My leg is much better now, my leg is like night and day. If you look at my leg now, it looks like it never even happened.
And if you see the picture of what my leg looked before and you see the after picture, it’s almost like I never had the surgery done. You can’t even see scars or anything.”
John's Before and After Pictures
“And the best part is I don’t have any fatigue in the leg, no heaviness, no sluggishness, no pain, no nothing. The leg is like as good as new.
I would definitely recommend the Vein and Vascular Institute, especially for Dr. Kerr. He was awesome. He was hands on. I would say he’s all strictly business. Takes care of it. Gets the job done.
I would say, I wouldn’t go to anybody else, to be honest with you. I would say he’s the best guy to go to, if you want it done right.”
If your varicose veins are becoming enlarged like John’s were, and if they are causing you pain, cramps and fatigue in your legs, do not delay in getting treatment. Because if left untreated, varicose veins can lead to the development of a blood clot that could travel to your lungs and become life-threatening.
