Accredited "Vein Center" Provides Best Outcomes


When considering where to seek evaluation and treatment for Varicose and Spider veins, physician experience and background is what insures appropriate treatment with the best long-term results. Albert Vein Institute (AVI) is Colorado’s ONLY IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) Accredited “Vein Center”, with convenient locations in both Lone Tree and Colorado Springs. Don’t be mislead by business-oriented “chain vein” facilities that promote their extensive number of facilities or business awards. In healthcare, larger is not always better. Making sure your actual provider has had advanced microsurgical training and extensive venous experience is critical to obtaining good results. In the “chain vein” model, the most experienced physicians can never be at nine or more locations simultaneously. Your treatment plan and potential procedures may be determined and performed by less experienced individuals.


Albert Vein Institute (AVI) has achieved the VEIN CENTER Accreditation from IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission), which makes them the first and only facility in Colorado to obtain this distinguished recognition. Dr. James D. Albert, Double Board Certified in Cardiovascular Surgery for over 30 years and board certified Phlebologist for the last 10 years, will always determine your appropriate treatment plan and perform all endovenous ablation procedures if indicated. Look for board certifications in your medical providers that actually prepared the practice to perform venous procedures. Passing the board exam in Phlebology and Lymphatic Medicine is an academic achievement but declares nothing about procedural expertise. Put yourself first by doing your own research. It will help you to make the correct choice when looking for minimally invasive vein care.
