Colorado’s Vein Specialist Vein Center of Excellence

Why AVI?

Trusted Vein Care in Lone Tree & Colorado Springs

The specialization of Phlebology (vein care) arose because the vascular surgeons who traditionally treated patients with venous disease were not exclusively focused on veins. Contrary to popular belief, board certification in Vascular Surgery does not necessarily mean expertise in vein care; in fact, the majority of a vascular surgeon’s training is focused on arterial disease rather than venous disease. Because vein care was something of an afterthought for this kind of surgeon, the quality of the treatments, such as those for varicose veins and spider viens, was inconsistent—and the need arose for a more specialized provider who was familiar with the intricacies of vein conditions and treatments.

Minimally Invasive Treatment

The advancement of minimally invasive catheter-based ablation technology has radically changed the treatment of venous disease by eliminating the need for inpatient general anesthesia. In fact, using general anesthesia for these procedures is no longer considered within industry best practices. Of course, this is good news for those suffering from venous disease—in the best-case scenario, patient recovery time decreases dramatically, with no impact on results.

Vein Care Qualifications
