Sheldon Strong
Dear Dr. Kundu,
I can only hope that the words I put on this page can begin to convey my deep gratitude to you and your staff.
For most of my adult life, I have been seriously compromised by a large varicosity in my right leg. While only mildly uncomfortable most mornings, within two hours of being on my feet, my right leg, and particularly my right foot, would begin to pound with a pain that elevation and Tylenol would only begin to ease.
Before EVLA Therapy
After EVLA therapy
Being self-employed in the car business, elevation was rarely an option during the day; hence, the pain was often close to unbearable by the evening. In addition to my concerns with the resulting reduction in activity, as a diabetic, I feared the formation of leg ulcers.
I had given some thought to surgery, but had not pursued it as a treatment option even though it was covered by OHIP. As desperate as I was for a “cure”, the length of the recovery period, the unpredictable outcome and the risk of infection/complications (given the multiple incision sites) made surgery a risk I was not prepared to take.
God bless the day I heard about your clinic. From the first consultation, I knew I was in the hands of a capable professional. You listened patiently, answered my questions, educated me, and inspired great confidence in you and your practice.
The procedure you recommended, Laser Ablation Therapy, was painless; and amazingly, I walked out of your office after one hour, with no restriction in activity, wearing a full leg support hose that was to be worn for the next six weeks. You diligently monitored the outcome, beginning with a phone call the day after the procedure, and continuing with a series of checkups over a period of months. The Vein Institute sets an amazing example of efficiency, thoroughness, sincere caring, and support; which I believe is generally lacking in health care today.
Today, as I write this letter, I can tell you that my life has changed. I can be on my feet all day long without pain of any kind. I thank you from the bottom of my heart, and wish you and your outstanding staff a wonderful and successful future.
With respect and gratitude.

My Experience
Sault Ste Marie, Ontario
For the past 24 years, I’ve suffered with Varicose Veins. My veins are hereditary (Mother and Grandmother). I have suffered with aching, swollen, tired, and cramping legs, as well as my legs being unsightly.
After years of research and misguided treatments, I found Dr. Kundu at The Vein Institute of Toronto™ through the internet.
After my first visit with the clinic, I felt comfortable and booked my Endovenous Laser surgery. After 45 minutes of painless surgery in his office, I’ve discovered nothing but positive results. Even things I did not account for, such as riding my bike and walking my dogs, no longer leave me with tired exhausted legs. The swelling in my legs and feet has decreased and my joints even seem better; no more aches (better blood flow, I guess) or soreness. My leg’s appearance is getting better every day.
We drive for 14 hours for each appointment and it is worth every mile, because you can’t put a price on your health and wellbeing.
If you would like to have a consultation please contact the Vein Institute, Toronto’s premier clinic for leading edge, state of the art treatments for leg varicose, spider and facial veins.

My Experience
August 2004
Sault Ste Marie, Ontario
This summer, I was under the care of Dr. Kundu at The Vein institute of Toronto™. He performed a non-invasive operation called “EVLA” on one of my legs.
After the procedure on my leg, I noticed considerable changes. Over the past 4 years, my left leg was really bothering me and was getting progressively worse. It always had a heavy aching, burning and, sometimes, pinching sensation. I would feel stiff constantly throughout the day and have to put my legs up for a bit. I even had to miss a couple of days of work because of the pain. My vein was sensitive to touch. After the procedure, all of these symptoms disappeared quickly if not the same day of the operation. I now have more energy, I am less tired, and can go an entire day without putting my legs up. I have recently started to wear sandals again. In the past, I mainly wore running shoes but now I can spend a day walking in sandals. My legs don’t ache anymore for wearing sandals.

After a lot of research on the internet, which gave me access to several clinics such as yours, I selected two and made appointments with each.
After visiting both, I chose The Vein Institute of Toronto™. Dr Kundu and his staff were most informative on the procedure and pleasant to deal with. I was given both the information and the confidence to move forward with the proposed treatment.
The procedure went exactly as he described, with some bruising and slight discomfort, but only for a few days. I persevered with the support hose, taking time to put them on as suggested, and found them to be most comfortable.
I have been most pleased with the results to date, which exceeded my expectations. I am now having treatment for “Spider Veins” and I am sure, eventually, I will feel very comfortable showing off my new legs on the beach.
