Dr. Albert brings 30 years of surgical leadership, experience, and knowledge to every patient.

Accreditation Equals a Commitment to Our Patients

Albert Vein Institute (AVI) has earned the prominent national distinction as Colorado’s first IAC ACCREDITED VEIN CENTER dedicated to meeting the needs of patients.

The IAC Accredited Vein Center is one of the highest credentials that a vein practice can earn. It represents that AVI has gone above and beyond to safeguard our vein care protocols and safety for our patients. AVI is one of about 114 IAC Accredited Vein Centers in the country. It is noteworthy that Blue Cross Blue Shield believes in this national vein center accreditation as their insured vein patients are only allowed to receive vein care from one of the IAC Accredited Vein Centers. We are honored to be one of the nation’s accredited vein centers.

Who Accredits Our Center?


It is one of the highest accreditations possible for today’s minimally invasive vein care providers. By going through a rigorous outside evaluation and approval by a prominent overseeing healthcare organization whose mission is to improve patient care, the VEIN CENTER ACCREDITATION means that AVI has gone ABOVE AND BEYOND TO SAFEGUARD how minimally invasive vein care is provided to your patients.

Note: AVI’s IAC Accreditation in Vascular Testing is very important as the ultrasound component of a vein practice but is not the same comprehensive accreditation as an IAC ACCREDITED VEIN CENTER. In addition, a national vein chain is not the same distinction as a nationally accredited vein center.

Alliances & Affiliations

For more than a decade, Albert Vein Institute has formed affiliations with accredited Phlebology Organizations and venous programs across the country aimed to combine the unparalleled research and expertise of Albert Vein Institute’s vein program with other vein care leaders.

Through these relationships, Albert Vein Institute works with quality venous programs to provide management services including clinical direction, quality assurance, and access to the latest in advanced minimally invasive technologies and techniques. Physicians and nurses from affiliate programs participate in training, conferences and educational programs.
