Doohi Lee, M.D.
Dr. Lee is Founder and Medical Director of Advanced Surgical Arts. He is a Surgical Radiologist, with interests in combining the techniques of minimally invasive surgery with radiological imaging. During the past sixteen years of practice, he received a special invitation to be a part of the Medical Team at the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games and has lectured nationally and internationally on Sports Imaging, Sports Ultrasound and Interventional Ultrasound. Recently, he was invited to be a part of the NASA team to teach astronauts the use of ultrasound in space while they were in the International Space Station.
With over 5,000 EVLA’s performed over the past 6 years, Dr. Lee has become an expert in varicose vein surgery. Often patients come to him with only swelling in the legs or superficial spider veins, not knowing the underlying problem of venous reflux. He diagnoses and performs every case with ultrasound guidance to provide patients the most minimally invasive option, leaving them with little to no scar. To ensure a complete treatment, Dr. Lee will follow-up with sclerotherapy following surgery to take care of any surface veins that may remain.
Also a Concert Pianist, Dr. Lee brings a unique approach to aesthetic medicine by combining artistic sensitivity and technical knowledge. He is dedicated to research and developing new methods of aesthetic improvement. As such, Dr. Lee is proud to offer NeoGraft™, a minimally invasive procedure for hair transplant that eliminates the linear scar across the back of the head and greatly reduces pain and downtime for the patient compared to the traditional strip method.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)
This minimally invasive procedure uses a precise laser to apply heat only to the varicose veins, which then close up and are reabsorbed harmlessly into the body. This reduces or eliminates symptoms while improving appearance. Blood flow is naturally redirected to healthy veins.
As one of the first doctors in the Dallas, TX, area to offer EVLA treatment, Dr. Lee is proud to offer this procedure as one of his best specialties.
This popular treatment for varicose veins and spider veins involves injecting a special solution into the affected veins, making them collapse and eventually be reabsorbed into the body. This reduces or eliminates symptoms while improving appearance. Blood is naturally redirected to healthy veins.
Laser Spider Vein Therapy
In this non-invasive procedure, bursts of laser light are applied only to the spider vein to make it fade and disappear. Blood is naturally redirected to healthier veins. This technique works well for thin veins such as spider veins and is often preferred for spider veins on the face.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection is an innovative therapy that relieves pain by encouraging long-term healing of musculoskeletal conditions such as arthritic joints, injured tendons and ligaments, and back and neck injuries. Since the body’s first response to injury is to deliver platelet cells, PRP therapy injects your own platelets into the problem area to strengthen the body’s natural healing signal. As a result, the risk of needing surgery is lessened, healing is accelerated, and pain is reduced or even eliminated.
Dr. Lee and the Advanced Surgical Arts team are known for combining exceptional patient care with expert skill and experience to offer safe, effective medical and aesthetic procedures. Through extensive training, Dr. Lee has built upon his background in radiology and surgery to excel at minimally invasive treatments that address his patients’ needs and concerns with less downtime. With a triple board certification, he offers the unusual ability to blend three specialties for a more comprehensive treatment approach.
If you have chronic pain that’s unrelieved by pain medications, it may be due to soft tissue abnormalities such as muscle pain with migraines or tendon pain after a sports injury. After performing a diagnostic ultrasound to determine the exact nature and extent of the abnormality, Dr. Lee can perform SonoKinesthesia to directly address the root of the problem.
