Robert R Artwohl, M.D.
Director and Founder, Alaska Vein Clinic
Dr. Robert R. Artwohl is an experienced general and vascular surgeon who now limits his practice to diagnosing and treating vein disease. He has specialized in arterial and venous surgery for over 20 years, and has lived in Anchorage, Alaska since 1997.
Dr. Artwohl received his BA magna cum laude in Biology from University of Maryland, Baltimore County and his MD degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine.

He is board certified by the American Board of Surgery.
During his training, one of his rotations involved a three month stint at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage. “I became very enchanted with the place,” he says.
In addition to providing Alaskans the latest in minimally invasive vein treatment, Dr. Artwohl and his staff strive to treat each patient with the highest level of care, compassion and attention to each patient’s unique needs.
Dr. Artwohl was born in Charlottesville, Virginia and spent his formative years in the Washington, D.C. area, Madrid, Spain, and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He is the son of a career Air Force officer who was a highly decorated World War II fighter pilot.

Ruth has been a part-time receptionist with the Alaska Vein Clinic since 2012, and has found the Alaska Vein Clinic a positive experience — not only as an employee, but as a patient. Having had ClosureFast by Dr. Artwohl, she enjoys making the patient feel comfortable about the procedure and smiles knowingly when she hears a patient say, “Why did I wait so long to have this done. My legs feel so much better!” Just as importantly, the Alaska Vein Clinic has found Ruth to be a very positive experience. Her cheerful outlook is so consistent, we all wonder if Ruth ever has a bad day.
