Delivering the Most Advanced Vein and Vascular Treatments
To the average person, spider or varicose veins—the squiggly, purple, sometimes bulging veins on your legs—are merely a cosmetic issue, the reason you don’t wear shorts during the summer.
But if you find it harder walking around, or experience numbness, pain, or cramping in your legs, you may have a medical condition that’s more than skin deep.

Restoring Blood Flow
Our team of vein and vascular specialists is composed of physicians specializing in interventional cardiology, surgery, and interventional radiology. Supported by skilled surgical nurses and anesthesiologists, the team takes a multidisciplinary approach to offer you the best, least-invasive treatment possible.
Vascular services we perform include:
- Sclerotherapy: An injection of a solution directly into a spider or varicose vein, causing it to fade from view
- Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)/Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): Techniques for treating larger varicose veins using different types of energy to seal malfunctioning veins
- Ambulatory Microphlebectomy: A technique for treating varicose veins that removes the faulty vein through a series of tiny incisions
- Thrombectomy: A surgical procedure to remove a blood clot in an artery or vein
- Angioplasty: A catheter-based procedure that uses a special balloon to widen a narrowed or blocked blood vessel
- Stenting: The insertion of small, expandable tubes called stents to support narrowed or weakened arteries, often performed along with an angioplasty
- Atherectomy: A catheter-based procedure that uses an attached rotating blade to shave plaque from a vessel wall
- Endarterectomy: A surgical procedure to remove plaque buildup in an artery
- Peripheral Arterial Bypass Surgery: A surgical procedure for treating clogged arteries that reroutes the blood supply around the blocked area.
