SAN ANTONIO - Are you struggling with pain in your legs and swelling?


You may have varicose veins, and Medical Vein Clinic is here to help you feel better and walk comfortably.


Tejano star Raulito Navaira developed varicose veins and didn't realize he had blood clots in each leg until Medical Vein Clinic spotted them with advanced imaging equipment.


People with varicose veins are five times more likely to develop dangerous blood clots, according to a study published in the Journal of American Medical Association this year.


"The procedure was quick and it took less than two hours," said Navaira. "I walked in and walked out."


Raulito credits Dr. John Hogg and Medical Vein Clinic for saving his life. 


"My legs are now free of pain and swelling," said Navaira.
