An astonishing 80 million Americans suffer from venous disease. Varicose veins are not a cosmetic issue and could lead to debilitating complications like non-healing ulcers, blood clots, chronic pain, etc. For years, many patients with venous disease were neglected by the medical community or presented with limited or undesirable surgical treatment options only.
VēNA offers comprehensive venous treatments such as EVLA (endovenous laser ablation), radiofrequency ablation, sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, cosmetic spider vein removal and many more. All treatments, whether medical or cosmetic, are tailored to individual patient’s needs. The procedures performed at VēNA Vascular Lab and Vein Clinic are exclusively outpatient, minimally invasive, painless with immediate results. There is no down time, which means that the patient can return to daily activities right after the treatment. “Vein care beneath the surface” is VēNA’s slogan, which means we look beyond the surface, identify and eliminate the real, deeper cause of the superficial vein disease.

Call VēNA if you are suffering from one or more of the following symptoms: swollen ankles, leg pain and aches, fatigue and heaviness, itching and burning, night cramps and restless legs, dry skin and irritation, non-healing wounds and eczema.

As Erik Greenberg Anjou’s documentary Deli Man notes, Jewish delis have dwindled in popularity over the past century. Locally we’ve seen numerous delis close: Jerry’s in Beverly Hills and Solley’s here in the Valley. We’re sad to report that Marv’s Delicatessen, a Valley Village institution since 1954, may also become a statistic. Herman “the German” […]
