Dr. Jeffrey Alpern: Be Informed – Know Your Venous System

Vein Specialists of Arizona educates with online Vein Talk Magazine

JA-OR-headshot2Dr. Jeffrey Alpern is a Cardiovascular Surgeon who was the first D.O. to perform a heart and heart/lung transplant in the world. But, it was his experience in vascular surgery for vein treatment that led him to investigate and try methods that were much less invasive compared to traditional practices.

“Specifically, I looked at procedures that could be performed without general anesthesia through minimally invasive out-patient laser surgery and other techniques,” Dr. Alpern explains.

Dr. Alpern adds that technology has moved rapidly in the treatment of venous disease, and he feels it’s important that patients know there are important advances in treatment and choices.

Dr. Alpern is out to help educate patients as to what is available for the treatment of venous disease through the Vein Specialists website, blog postings and now Vein Talk, an online magazine with detail information to help make informed decisions as to what can be done about varicose and spider vein issues.

Dr. Alpern continues, “Great results combined with a high level of patient satisfaction inspired me to shift my focus away from cardiovascular surgery and concentrate on providing safe, effective and relatively simple out-patient venous disease and cosmetic vein treatment. The results clearly exceeded my expectations. More than 96% of the patients experienced a 100% improvement, and without any adverse effects. All were able to resume their activities in just a few days to a week.”

Vein Specialists of Arizona (VSA) was founded to meet the needs of large numbers of people in Arizona who suffer from poorly treated or mismanaged venous disease. Another goal of VSA is to provide aesthetic spider vein and varicose vein treatments along with an evaluation that rules out serious pathology in need of correction.
