Could it be a Vein Problem?

Do you have vein problems?  Or is it lymphedema?  Restless legs?  Noctorunal leg cramps?  How do these relate to vein disease?  Use our site to learn more about conditions that may affect your legs.

Why Choose the Alaska Vein Clinic?

If you have spider veins, varicose veins, leg swelling, heaviness and tiredness of the legs, itching, burning, pigmentation and skin ulcers caused by venous insufficiency, you can trust the Alaska Vein Clinic to properly diagnose and treat your problems. 

If you’re not sure your leg problems are not related to venous disease, we can help you sort that out as well and get you going in the right direction.

And if it turns out you need a venous procedure, you will be in good hands.  We have safely and successfully performed over 5000 non-surgical minimally invasive outpatient office-based procedures that leave patients with minimal discomfort and no downtime.

Every patient is personally evaluated by Dr. Artwohl.

All procedures are performed by Dr. Artwohl, a board certified surgeon with over 20 years of vascular surgery experience and over 10 years of performing minimally invasive venous techniques.

All venous ultrasound studies are performed by Devon Berthiaume, a sonographer who is a certified Registered Vascular Technologist. He has worked with Dr. Artwohl for 8 years and has had extensive experience in performing venous duplex ultrasound studies.

We are in-network and preferred providers for Aetna (including all Aetna administered plans), all Blue Cross and Blue Shield programs, GEHA, United Health Care, EBMS, Cigna, and many others.

We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare, and have proudly worked with Veterans referred from the VA for many years. If you have no insurance, we can work out easy payment plans.

We are fully committed to doing what needs to be done and nothing more, and to treating each of our patients like each of us would want to be treated.

THE ALASKA VEIN CLINIC PHILOSOPHY AND PRACTICE:

To recognize every patient is an individual with unique needs and goals.

To only recommend venous procedures that are needed and will conform to the patients needs and goals.

To perform venous procedures in an orderly, rational, and stepwise fashion.  Not all venous procedures need to be done at once and by staging venous procedures, many unnecessary procedures can be avoided.  This is both safe and economical for the patient.

To fully inform each patient about any procedure being recommended:  why it is being done, how it is being, what can be expected from the procedure, and the limitations and risks of each procedure.

To work with the patient to make any treatment as affordable as possible.
