The featured speaker at June’s Chamber luncheon was Dr. Jaun Carlos Rozo, of Cardiology Specialists of Houston.

Dr. Rozo spoke about chronic venus insufficiency, which is about the lack of adequate blood flow in the lower legs, and problems that can lead to. He said that factors leading to this condition include family history, age over 50, and obesity. He uses ultrasound to diagnose the condition, and then treats it with one of four methods: laser therapy, sclerotherapy, RF procedure which is a catheter in the vein, or burning the vein, he said. The method depends upon the severity of the leg.

There will be no luncheon in July, according to president Margie Buentello. The next program is on August 5, the speaker is Darrell Pile, CEO of Southeast Texas Regional Advisory Council.
