Tampa Vascular Surgeon – Treating Vein and Arterial Diseases Using The Most Advanced Vascular Surgery Techniques Since 1997 And Specializing In Limb Salvage
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 and 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 and 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 vascular institute, diagnosing and treating Venous Insufficiency, Peripheral Arterial Disease, Carotid Artery Disease, and Aortic Aneurysms in their earliest stages of development is our priority because vascular 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 call us at (813) 377-2773 to schedule a consultation with one of our vascular surgeons.

I could not take part in just simple day to day activities without being in this immense level of pain. If you're feeling the same symptoms that I was once having, get your veins checked, it could be Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. I am so grateful for Dr. Wright's diagnosis and treatment of PCS. In less than 24 hours I started to get my life back. And ever since then, I have just been truly grateful of every moment.

I came across Dr. Jones and he offers a procedure that is minimally invasive and treats uterine fibroids called a UFE (Uterine Fibroid Embolization). It was a really seamless process. From the beginning to recovery the team at Lutz was really wonderful and of course Dr. Jones is amazing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jones and all of the physicians and team at The Vein and Vascular Institute. They have been wonderful!

I am happy to recommend Dr. Kerr to anyone who has an issue with their veins or their legs. I can't even pronounce the name of the procedure that he did on me. All I know is that it prevented some huge problems and I'm thankful for that. Get yourself checked out. Getting an ultrasound is not that difficult and if you have to have a procedure done, it's not painful.

I recommend The Vein and Vascular Institute, I really do, because the doctors I've dealt with are excellent. And I have dealt with other vein doctors and they are not nearly as nice as these people. The office staff is excellent. They greet you at the front desk and they are very friendly. It's nice to come in and see a friendly staff. Everybody's happy.

My ultrasound tech is such a sweetheart. They all make you feel comfortable and safe under their care! I have already recommended my parents to come here!
Had the best experience with Dr. Wright. I had 6 varicose veins removed and a vein shut off in my leg. The surgery was painless and I can't believe that I have no scars! He did an excellent job with a high level of professionalism! I highly recommend him!!
Honestly, Dr. Jones, in my opinion is top notch. He’s fantastic. I would go to him anytime again for any vein and vascular issue I would have.
The first time I met him he was so personable, so down-to-earth. And I talked with him and he really talked with me. He explained my whole situation, what was going on. He asked me if I had any questions, additional questions. And he answered any questions I had.
Dr. Jones did a great job. I was just so amazed how painless it was and how wonderful my legs looked. And because of the job that he did with my legs, I have a new life with my legs now. I’m able to do things that I couldn’t do before. I have more stamina. My legs are not tired in the morning. They’re not painful any longer. They’re wonderful they feel great.

I just want to thank Dr. Jones here at The Vein and Vascular Institute for giving me back my life.
Extremely professional. As a physician I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Kerr and his staff and felt he gave me the highest quality care one could ever receive, I would highly recommend Dr. Kerr to my family, my friends and most importantly, my patients.
Dr. Bunnell and her team of Gianna and James were amazing thank you guys for making so easy.
The staff and Dr. Kerr are top notch! I could not ask for a better place to receive treatment and I could not be happier with the results. I will not hesitate to recommend The Vein and Vascular Institute to any of my friends and family. Thank you Dr. Kerr!
If you ever need a vascular surgeon I highly recommend Dr. Kerr. He's everything you want a doctor to be - skilled, thorough, kind, answers questions, never wastes your time. I've seriously never experienced a more efficiently run medical practice.
The staff is kind, courteous, caring and considerate. Dr Brandt Jones has an excellent bedside manor. He takes his time with you explains what is going on and makes sure you understand. Could not ask for a better doctor.
Dr. Suresh and his staff are very kind, caring and informative when I have had appointments. Dr. Suresh did a outstanding job with my surgery and highly recommend this practice!
I recommend Dr. Goldbach for arteries or any vein issue…he’s easy going, he’s fun, he’s funny. He jokes, he comes in with a smile even though he might have had a rough morning, he still comes in happy. He’s just bubbly. When you meet a doctor and he’s friendly, bubbly…somebody you can talk to. He cares about what he does. He’s frank and tells you point blank what the problem is. But he does it in a caring way. He’s more of a laid back professional doctor.
Everyone was very kind, considerate and caring. The procedure was nearly pain free and Dr. Jones was very attentive and caring as was his assistant. I am very happy I chose this facility.
I went there after suffering with pain and heaviness in my legs for two years. Spoke with Dr. Wright he said that I had some vein problems but he could fix them. Now after my procedures my legs are feeling great and pain free. Thanks to Dr. Wright.
It was a really seamless process. From the beginning to recovery the team at Lutz was really wonderful and of course Dr. Jones is amazing. I would highly recommend Dr. Jones and all of the physicians and team at The Vein and Vascular Institute. They have been wonderful!
I am beyond impressed with the entire staff at the Lutz office.The appointments are always on time, office is clean and Iris is always happy to help with any questions you have. Now Dr. Wright, what a true professional, knowledgeable and always makes one feel comfortable.
I could not take part in just simple day to day activities without being in this immense level of pain. Dr. Wright was so patient and he truly did hear everything I had to say. He heard my experiences, all that was occurring and he said, "Don't worry, we're going to figure out what's going on. And if I can't figure it out, I'm going to help you figure out what it is." Those had to be the most heart-warming words any physician could say to their patient. Dr. Wright diagnosed and treated my pelvic congestion syndrome and I am so grateful to him and The Vein and Vascular Institute. I feel like I have my life back.
Dr. Bunnell is a wonderful doctor. I had a very good time and generally enjoyed the office. Maria was very helpful at the front.
Holly helped restore my confidence in my legs. I had spider veins for many many years and never was happy with my legs. Now I can wear shorts with confidence. Amanda and Iris were great in assisting with the procedures as well!
Dr. Suresh is an excellent surgeon. Office is clean. Assistants are knowledgeable and respectful.
The staff is very nice. I see Dr. Suresh and he is very professional and very pleasant.

Highly recommend this practice for hormone therapy and weight loss. Dr. Valentin is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She was able to give me back my energy and I feel better than ever. She also explains how hormones and supplements help support a healthier body for the years to come as well. Overall a great experience and I will be returning.
Dr Goldbach has helped my husband an awful lot. He really is a very good doc and has a great bedside manner. The docs there really are very good at what they do and the staff is all so wonderful.
I would highly recommend Dr. Goldbach if you need anything done. Both he and his assistants were wonderful during my ELVT procedure. I give them a 5 star rating!
