Tampa Vascular Surgeon – Treating Vein & Arterial Diseases Using The Most Advanced Vascular Surgery Techniques Since 1997

The vascular surgeons at The Vein and Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay are passionate about and committed to their mission of providing excellent vascular surgery services to every one of their patients.

Our Tampa vascular surgeons are Board Certified in Vascular Surgery so their extensive training allows them to accurately diagnose and treat all vein and arterial diseases using advanced methods.

Our Tampa vein center, The Vein & Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay, is a Nationally Accredited Vascular Lab and is one of only a few vein centers in Florida to be accredited by the IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Society).

The Vein & Vascular Institute of Tampa Bay’s state-of-the-art ultrasound technology allows our vein specialists to quickly, painlessly, and accurately detect any vein and arterial diseases in their earliest stages of development.

At our Tampa vein clinic, diagnosing and treating Venous Insufficiency, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Carotid Artery Disease, and Aortic Aneurysms in their earliest stages of development is our priority because vein and arterial diseases are progressive, only worsening with time and potentially becoming fatal, if left untreated.

If left untreated, these vein and arterial diseases can cause: enlarged and painful varicose veins; spider veins; swollen, throbbing and painful legs; leg ulcers; irreversible skin discoloration; and restless legs.

With time, these serious symptoms can eventually lead to: potentially fatal blood clots; a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in the lungs); leg, foot or toe amputation; heart attack; stroke; and possibly death.

Early vein treatment, proven cutting-edge technology, the expertise of a top-notch team of vascular specialists, and the use of minimally-invasive surgical techniques are the key factors for getting great surgery results.

Our expert Tampa vascular surgeons have performed thousands of minimally-invasive vascular surgeries, achieving amazing results with patients enjoying incredibly quick recovery times, and minimal to no scarring at all.

If you are experiencing any symptoms related to vein disease or arterial disease, or if you are over the age of 50, diabetic, have ever smoked, have a family history of vascular disease, and you live in the Tampa Bay area, we recommend that you give us a call at (813) 377-2773 to schedule a vein consultation or a vascular screening.
