Downers Grove, IL – Midwest Vein Center (MVC) founder, J. Gordon Wright, MD, FACS, RVT has been selected as a 2010 "Top Doctor" as listed in Chicago Magazine, on newsstands now. Only 345 physicians made the list this year and Dr. Wright was the only full time Phlebologist selected under the Vascular Surgery category.
The list, prepared for Chicago by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd., was compiled by contacting thousands of health professionals in metropolitan Chicago and asking them to name the doctors to whom they would entrust a family member when confronting a particular problem. The results from surveying these physicians yielded the list.
Dr. Wright is board certified in phlebology and vascular surgery and specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease. Thirteen years ago, he founded the Midwest Vein Center which has offices Downers Grove, Glenview and Orland Park.
“I’ve made medicine and vascular surgery in particular, my life’s work in order to help people live happier, healthier lives. I’m happy that our efforts and commitment to provide the highest level of patient care have been recognized,” said Dr. Wright.
Dr. Wright has been treating patients with vein problems for 25 years, since earning his medical degree from Loyola University Medical Center in 1981. His fellowship in Vascular Surgery at Boston University was rewarded with the opportunity to run the Vein Clinic at the Boston City hospital. He continued his career at The Ohio State University, where he started The OSU Vein Clinic and trained numerous fellows, residents and other health professionals in vascular surgery, general surgery and vein disease. His lectures and papers number in the hundreds and he has been an active participant, committee chairman or officer of several important medical societies. Most notably, he is past president of the Chicago Endovascular Surgery Society.
The Midwest Vein Center is a medical practice committed to the non-surgical treatment of vein disease and related disorders. As one of the first vein centers in the Chicago area to consistently offer new technologies and techniques including Endovenous Laser for varicose veins, MVC has successfully treated thousands of patients with state-of-the art procedures. All physicians have undergone extensive fellowship training in phlebology and as a result, treatment success rates at MVC are higher than the national success rates for vein care.
