Did You Know?
The First Glance Vein Clinic was started in May 2003 and was the first private vein clinic in Manitoba. We were the first facility to use EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment) for varicose veins, rather than surgery. We were also the first facility to offer the new Clarivein Endovenous procedure in the Prairie Provinces. Dr. Lockwood was trained personally in EVLT by Dr. Robert Min of Cornell University in New York, one of the inventors of the technique.
