Perhaps the best compliment and rating came from a CNA while assisting me with dressing,. When she came to the stockings, she said, "Gee, these are neat." After trying several brands, these fit the best. The price is great, to!

These stockings are excellent and do exactly what I want them to do. I have edema in my feet and ankles and neuropathy in my toes and these stockings do an excellent job of keeping the swelling down to a minimum and are very comfortable. The quality and price cannot be beat anywhere. I recommend them to anyone that has a problem with edema.

These stockings were a great find. They are a little heavier than the TEDS, but give much firmer support. The price is outstanding. I paid $ 29 and $ 22.50 for the two pair of TEDS that I purchased. I also liked the fact that Discount Surgical did not charge my credit card until the merchandise shipped. Two pair were on back order and I wasn't charged for them until the shipped separately. This is a good company to do business with. I have told every one of my doctors about Discount Surgical so that they can pass the word along to other patients who wear compression stockings.

Great product! The anti Embolism Knee-High 10-20 mmhg closed toe stockings provide the support I need during my long days at work. I am a nurse working 12 hr shifts that frequently turn into 14 hr shifts. Standing and walking for this amount of time can be very stressful to your legs and feet therefore, I wear these stockings to relieve the stress and it works great! Try them and you will find out for yourself!

Q & A

Ask a Question
Questions that are on Your Mind
Q: Can you help me with sizing?
A: You can view the size chart here: size chart
You will need accurate measurements, so first learn how to measure.
Q: What is compression? What is the difference in compression?
A: You wear compression stockings to improve blood flow in your legs. Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to move blood up your legs. This helps prevent leg swelling and, to a lesser extent, blood clots.
Q: What does mmHg mean?
A: mmhg stands for "millimeter of mercury", a way to measure pressure. The higher the number, the tighter the garment will squeeze and the more compression it provides.
Q: How can we wash the garments? And with which soap or detergent?
A: We recommend to hand wash in warm water and air dry. You can use mild soup of the washing solution that we provide such as the jobst jolastic, hosiery mate washing solution, sigvaris liquid washing solution etc. See our full washing instructions.
Q: What is the difference between open toe and close toe?
A: There is no therapeutic difference between open and closed toe socks. The choice is yours, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: What is opaque?
A: Opaque is a thicker material that provides great coverage and your skin will be far less visible. Usually worn in winter because of the thickness.
Q: What is sheer?
A: Sheer is a thinner, dressier material. Customer usually like these because they can use them as dress socks for work or church.
Q: Do I get compression at the toe area?
A: No. Compression begins at the ankle and gradually lessens as it goes up the leg. This reduces pooling in the legs and helps the veins return blood to the heart.
Q: Will a thicker material give me more support than the sheer material?
A: No. The compression provided is measured by mmHg and is the same no matter the material. The choice of material is up to you, whichever is more comfortable.
Q: If I get pantyhose will I get more compression than with a knee-hi?
A: No.
