Physicians' Background

About Lindy McHutchison, MD

Dr. McHutchinson became interested in Phlebology, the diagnosis, treatment and management of varicose veins (venous disease) after having her own veins treated. Dr. McHutchison began training with notable physicians in the field of Phlebology, first at the Duke Vein Clinic with Dr. Cynthia Shortell, and subsequently, she completed an extended clinical training with Dr. John Mauriello, a pioneer in modern Phlebology. She also trained with Dr. John Kinglsey in Birmingham, AL, another nationally known phlebologist.

Dr. McHutchison began working with Dr. Mauriello at the VeinHelp Clinic in Durham. When Dr. Mauriello moved to Florida, Dr. McHutchison acquired the VeinHelp clinic, now Carolina Vein Center. Dr. McHutchison is a member of the American College of Phlebology (ACP and an active member of the ACP’s specialty recognition committee. Learn more about Phlebology at

She attended medical school at LSU in Shreveport, LA and completed her Ob/Gyn residency at UCS’s LA County Hospital in LA, CA.  Prior to her interest in varicose veins, Dr. McHutchison practiced Ob/Gyn for 12 years in San Diego, where she also managed varicose veins in her pregnant patients. Although she is board certified in Ob/Gyn and still passionate about women’s health care, Dr. McHutchison now practices Phlebology full time.

Dr. McHutchison enjoys playing tennis, ballroom dancing and swimming. She admits, "I love doing veins - veins are my hobby!"
