With more than 30 years of experience in general surgery—plus nearly a decade focused on vascular surgery—Dr. James Isobe and his staff help patients overcome the physical discomfort and cosmetic issues caused by spider and varicose veins. The vein center specializes in minimally invasive treatments, starting with duplex ultrasound diagnostics that can painlessly assess vein health. Based on the results, Baptist Vein Center recommends therapies such as endovenous laser treatment, which collapses varicose veins with laser energy. Spider veins are typically treated with sclerotherapy, both a procedure involving injections and the final word in most spelling bees.
