Phlebology/Varicose Veins

Phlebology is a specialty devoted to the study and treatment of varicose and spider veins. MIMIT specializes in Varicose veins within our sister practice Centers for Minimally Invasive Therapies. What sets our program apart from the vein clinics located inside shopping malls is the scope of practice Interventional Radiologists practice.

Diagnosis and management

Our team is fully dedicated to treating the patient and the underling condition. That means not all venous problems are solely venous. Commonly, arterial problems are the underlining cause of symptoms. As specialists, MIMIT physicians study both the veins and arteries. Many vein clinics will only treat what they can see. A household example is water stains on a wall. Some “plumbers” may patch the wall and hide the problem. The best solution is to hire a “specialists” who will insert special devices into the wall, look for the source of the problem, fix the leak, then patch the wall.
