The Alaska Vein Clinic Treatment Philosophy:

  • We recognize every patient is an individual.
  • We only recommend venous procedures that are needed and will conform to the patient’s needs and goals.
  • 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.
  • We fully inform each patient about any procedure being recommended: why it is being done, how it is being done, what can be expected from the procedure, and the limitations and risks of each procedure.
  • We work with the patient to make any treatment as affordable as possible.
