Facility Information

Welcome to Coastal Vein Institute!

With 10 locations along the Gulf Coast of Florida and Alabama, we are proud to be the region’s only multi-disciplinary institute dedicated to treating the full spectrum of varicose veins and venous disorders. We pride ourselves on the unique experience of each of our physicians and the state-of-the-art care offered at our facility.

Combining the expertise of two specialties vascular surgery and interventional radiology – we offer our patients the best of both worlds when it comes to vascular care. As the founders of Coastal Vein Institute, we have performed thousands of life-saving vascular procedures and possess a keen understanding of the intricacy of the venous system. It is this knowledge, and years of experience working with arteries and veins that have culminated in the establishment of the Coastal Vein Institute.

We take great satisfaction in the successful results we have achieved, and our sincere commitment to personalized patient care. We welcome the opportunity serve you.

Procedures & Services

The Venefit® procedure, an alternative treatment option to traditional vein stripping surgery, brings state-of-the-art technology to an age-old disease. Treatment times are usually less than 2 minutes, and patients are in and out of the office in less than 90 minutes. The Venefit procedure is performed on an outpatient basis. Using ultrasound, your physician will position the catheter into the diseased vein, through a small opening in the skin. The tiny catheter delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy to the vein wall, causing the collagen in the wall to shrink and the vein to close. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins.

Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT)

EVLT (Endovenous Laser Therapy) is an innovative new treatment that eliminates the need for surgery and is approved by the FDA for treatment of the greater saphenous vein, the largest vein in the body that runs through the leg. Performed in our office, EVLT involves threading a thin laser fiber up the saphenous vein in the thigh from below the knee to the groin. The fiber is slowly withdrawn while the laser delivers pulses of energy to the inside of the vein, causing it to close. This office-based procedure is virtually painless and is completed in one to two hours.

Micro Phlebectomy

Micro phlebectomy is a minimally invasive method for treating small varicose veins. Recent advances have made it possible to perform this procedure in our office using only a local anesthetic. A small hook is used to remove the vein through tiny incisions. As the incisions are extremely small, stitches are rarely needed. The incisions typically heal within a few days.

Spider Vein Treatments
Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy has been used to close abnormal leg veins for many years and may be used for treatment of both spider and varicose veins. With sclerotherapy, a very fine needle is used to inject a medication directly into the spider or varicose veins. This medication stimulates the inside of the vein, which then collapses and become reabsorbed. Modern sclerotherapy is performed under ultrasound guidance using foam made of the sclerosing medicine mixed with air. It affords excellent results when used separately or in conjunction with other treatments. Each vein may require one to several injections and most disappear in a few weeks to several months.

Vein Wave Therapy

Veinwave is a new procedure which uses thermocoagulation to safely and effectively treat spider veins and telangiectasia anywhere on the body. The procedure was developed by vascular surgeons as a way to treat very tiny veins that cannot be treated with sclerotherapy. Veinwave can also be used to treat veins in difficult-to-treat locations, including the face, ankles, and knees. The treatment relies on thermocoagulation to heat and close vessels instantly, in a procedure that takes less than 15 to 30 minutes to perform and involves no downtime.

Veinwave is a unique technique for the treatment of spider veins and telangietasia. Millions of men and women suffer from those unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple veins that spider-web across the cheeks, thighs, calves, ankles and knees. Veinwave uses a revolutionary process called "Unipolar Thermo-coagulation;" a high-frequency energy is applied to the affected area which causes the vein walls to collapse. Unlike lasers, the Veinwave involves only slight discomfort, so there is no need for anesthetic creams or pain medications. VeinWave may not be right for everyone- see your vascular specialist for more information.

Varicose Veins are abnormal enlarged or swollen veins that can be flesh colored, but are usually dark purple or blue in color. The veins often have the appearance of cords that are twisted or bulging. Besides the visual symptoms mentioned, legs feel tired, aching, and are swollen around ankles. Treatment options include: VNUS closure, Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT), and Microphlebectomy.

With a caring and professional staff, the Coastal Vein Institute offers a variety of non-surgical vein treatments to help patients look and feel their best. Book an appointment today!
