I was very happy with the results of my leg vein work with Dr. Ives a few years ago. Trying to now come back for the other leg! The visible difference between the two is remarkable.

During moose hunting in Alaska years before ever meeting Dr. Ives I had herniated a disc in my back. At the time I was advised to exercise and live through the problem as surgical options did not always provide the best outcome. A decade later after considerable pain and agony I made the decision to seek surgery to do anything to improve my condition. The surgeon from out of Fairbanks sent me a 14 page medical history in which I indicated (alert to healthgrades not enough space for story) why?
