Happy Holidays

The staff at Southern Illinois Vein Center wants to wish everyone a very Happy Father’s Day!

We want to remind you that men can get varicose veins, too. In fact, by age 60, approximately 40% of men (and 70% of women) will suffer from painful legs and varicose veins.

Whether you’re a man or a woman, if you’re having discomfort in your legs and bulging varicose veins you can trust Dr. James Robelen of Southern Illinois Vein Center to examine your legs for vein disease at an upcoming Vein Consultation to correctly diagnose your medical problem. (See below for details.)

Varicose veins –– and vein disease –– are a medical condition that affects millions of Americans, so it’s not just a cosmetic issue. This is a progressive condition that will get worse over time.

Call us today at (618) 998-VEIN (8346) to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Robelen. Once we get your legs looking and feeling better, you’ll be proud to show them off by wearing skirts, shorts or swimsuits again when the weather warms up.

Call Today for a Vein Consultation

Southern Illinois Vein Center held vein consultations earlier this year in Paducah, KY and Mt. Vernon, IL for patients who wanted to find out about available treatments for their vein disease.

We had so many requests that we ended up scheduling some patients on other days.

Now, you can learn more about varicose vein diagnosis at one of vein consultations:

  • Scheduled for Thursday, August 7th, from 2pm – 6pm, and Friday, August 8th, from 1pm – 5pm, both in Paducah, KY.
  • Space is limited, so register now by calling us at (270) 444-7722.

If Dr. Robelen and his staff determine that you have vein disease, most varicose veins procedures are covered by insurance.

Watch Our New TV Commercials

Southern Illinois Vein Center is proud to be able to show you some 30-second TV commercials of our new campaign.

The first commercial features a patient named Carey, an attorney; the second tells the story of Jody, a police chief; the third is Ben, a pharmacist, while the fourth is a compilation of Jodie, Carey, and Edie, a retired nurse.

All patients were suffering from swollen, painful varicose veins and sought treatment from Dr. James Robelen for in-office, minimally invasive procedures.

Visit Our New Website

websiteWe’re very pleased to announce that our new website went live recently – with detailed descriptions about our minimally invasive vein procedures, patient testimonials, credentials about our staff members, and locations of our three offices.

The site has been redesigned and rewritten to help our valued patients make an appointment online, get the forms they need for their first visit, verify if we accept their insurance for medical procedures, and read testimonials from our patients. By the way, if you have a new testimonial to share, we’re all ears.
