At Miller Vein, we specialize in vein disorders. That’s it. Only veins. We don't do botox, or implants or plastic surgery.

We’ve dedicated our careers and our treatment centers to the most advanced diagnosis and treatment of vein disorders like varicose and spider veins, and we apply our talents with one simple goal in mind: Helping patients free themselves from the chronic and often debilitating leg pain that accompanies those conditions.

By focusing strictly on veins day in and day out, our highly trained medical staff are vein experts. Regular, extensive training and the most advanced laser and imaging equipment make it possible for us to apply the latest innovations in technology, devices, and procedures to make your legs feel good, and look good as well. You’ll rest easy knowing our friendly, knowledgeable staff have seen it all, and can immediately respond to your fears and concerns. At Miller Vein, you may walk in with questions, but you will always walk out with answers. 

Services Offered

Vein Treatments

Treating varicose veins varies from person to person. Treatment options largely depend upon the ultrasound exam results, but typically include: endovenous laser ablation, radiofrequency ablation, microphlebectomy, sclerotherapy, and medical compression stockings.

These advanced techniques have eliminated the need for painful stripping procedures that are now obsolete. Our services include the most current techniques for treating venous insufficiency such as endovenous thermal ablation, (using the latest industry-standard laser and radiofrequency ablation equipment) and microphlebectomy (removal of varicose veins through tiny incisions).  We also provide the latest treatments for spider veins including sclerotherapy, including Veinwave and VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis Systems.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive technique for treating venous insufficiency. We insert a small needle into the affected vein using ultrasound guidance, then we place an FDA-approved catheter (VNUS Closure) into the vein.

The subsequent radiofrequency energy is delivered directly to the affected vein and seals it shut (ablation). Once the diseased blood vessel is closed, blood flow is then rerouted to other healthy veins, reestablishing normal flow. This technique is virtually painless and patients resume normal activities following the procedure. 

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy is a safe and effective, minimally-invasive surgical procedure to treat varicose veins. We use a special marker to tag the surgical site where the superficial varicose veins will be removed under local anesthetic using a special set of tools. The leg is then wrapped, and patients can walk immediately after the procedure. 

Sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy is a safe procedure in which a solution called a sclerosing agent is injected into veins using extremely fine needles which cause the veins to close.The number of treatments needed differs from patient to patient, depending on the extent of the problem. The treatment sessions are performed at four to six week intervals to achieve optimal results. After the procedure, compression stockings are applied and patients can immediately walk out of the treatment center. 

Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is similar to conventional sclerotherapy. Under ultrasound guidance, a needle is inserted into affected veins and a sclerosing agent is injected. Both the needle and solution can be visualized by the physician with this technique. The sclerosing agent irritates the vein wall causing it to collapse and scar down. Once the diseased vein is closed, other healthy veins take over to carry blood from the leg, reestablishing normal flow. 

 

Jeffrey H. Miller, MD

Interventional Radiologist and Phlebologist



Dr. Jeffrey Miller is board certified in interventional radiology and phlebology, and is also a diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners as well as the American Board of Radiology. He holds a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in interventional radiology. Increasingly, medical offices are offering varicose vein and spider vein care, but none can match the experience, knowledge or expertise of Miller Veins. 

Dr. Miller has been performing complex image-guided endovascular procedures since 1994. His experience includes service as a director of the Vascular and Interventional Radiology Department at Oakwood Hospital and Medical Center in Dearborn, Michigan. As of January 2008, Dr. Miller was one of only two American Medical Association-registered phlebologists in Michigan.

Born and raised in Metro Detroit, Jeffrey H. Miller, MD earned his bachelor of science degree at Michigan State University where he graduated with high honors. He then attended Wayne State University Medical School and received his medical degree with high distinction. He was one of only 15 students in a class of 250 to achieve honors in each year of medical school. He received his radiology training at William Beaumont Hospital where he served as a chief resident. He then did a fellowship in interventional radiology, and that has been his focus ever since.

Dr. Miller has received many honors and awards throughout his training and professional career. HOUR Magazine named him one of “Detroit’s Top Docs.” A member in many honor societies, Dr. Miller was accepted to Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi as an undergrad and to Alpha Omega Alpha during medical school. He received the "Faculty Teacher of the Year"  award multiple times at Oakwood Hospital and Medical Center, as well as the Research Mentor Award. Dr. Miller has given hundreds of lectures, often speaking at national medical meetings and medical professional conferences.

Steven K. Wang, MD

Interventional Radiologist and Phlebologist

A native of Chicago, Illinois, Dr. Steven K. Wang received his formal education in the Midwest. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin, where he completed a double major in biochemistry and molecular biology, graduating with distinction in 1987. He completed his medical school studies at the University of Illinois in 1991. It was there where his interest in the procedural care of patients began.

He began his residency training in general surgery, but decided to change his focus to more minimally invasive procedures using imaging guidance (ultrasound, CT scan, MRI, X-ray). He completed his residency in Diagnostic Radiology, and completed a fellowship in interventional radiology in 1997.


Since his residency training, Dr. Wang’s specific area of interest has been venous disease. He was the first physician to bring minimally invasive endovenous treatments for varicose veins to William Beaumont Hospital--first with radiofrequency technology, after its initial FDA approval, then with laser technology. Other local physicians know his expertise in treating complex vascular diseases well.

Dr. Wang has lectured extensively and published multiple articles in the field of interventional radiology i
n the past decade. He has trained many physicians in treating varicose veins and other complex venous diseases. He was the fellowship director and Director of Resident Education in Interventional Radiology at William Beaumont Hospital and has been voted "Teacher of the Year." 

Dr. Wang has also served on numerous committees with a focus on quality assurance and patient care, including serving on the Peripheral Vascular Interventions Advisory Committee of the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Cardiovascular Consortium, a multi-center, state-wide initiative to improve patient care in Michigan.
 

Michael E. Lulenski, MD

Interventional Radiologist

Dr. Michael E. Lulenski joined the Miller Vein team of vascular experts in July 2012. During his residency program, Dr. Lulenski trained under the tutelage of Dr. Miller.

"He was the best resident in IR I every had! I could trust him to perform procedures from the very beginning to the completion of a case," Dr. Miller said.


"Dr. Lu," as patients know him, received his bachelor of science degree at the University of Arizona in 1992 and graduated with honors. Dr. Lulenski graduated medical school in 1997. He broadened his experience by spending his third year of medical school studying at Waterford Regional Hospital in Ireland and his fourth year at Beth Israel Hospital in New York City. In 2002, he completed his residency at Oakwood Hospital and Medical Center in Dearborn, Michigan, where he was awarded for outstanding patient care. Following his residency, Dr. Lulenski’s interest in vascular care blossomed as he completed his fellowship in  interventional radiology in June 2003 at Tampa General Hospital, Tampa, Florida.

In 2004, prior to joining the elite group of physicians at Miller Vein, Dr. Lulenski was one of the founders of Legacy Vein Clinic, located in South Bend, Indiana. While there, he was the first in that region to perform endovenous thermal ablation.

"When I heard he wanted to move back to Michigan, I had to offer him a job right on the spot, and I have been thrilled with his performance. More importantly, his patients love him! This makes sense since he has been running a vein clinic for years" according to Dr. Miller.

Dr. Lulenski now serves as the medical director of Miller Vein.
