Faulty valves, age, and even genetic predisposition can all be responsible for the appearance of unsightly?and occasionally painful?varicose and spider veins. At Venocure, Dr. George Nahhas specializes in using cutting-edge medical technologies to remove these blemishes using minimally invasive methods. The VNUS Closure procedure uses ultrasound-guided catheters to enter the affected veins and then bombard the walls with a barrage of radio frequency energy, which causes the veins to collapse and minimizes their appearance to the naked eye. In addition to this highly refined approach, Dr. Nahhas also offers other tried-and-true methods for concealing the signs of blue-tinged varicose veins, such as sclerotherapy injections and compression stockings, as opposed to drawing skin-colored tattoos over the affected areas.
Refractive surgeon Dr. Hasan Hakim doesn’t just perform LASIK surgery—he was involved in the FDA trials of the excimer laser used in LASIK during his time at the University of Kansas.

With 5,000 vision-correction procedures already under his belt, Dr. Hakim continues to tend to peepers with deft hands and state-of-the-art technology, performing both incision and laser procedures to bring the world back into focus for those struggling to read street signs or tea leaves. A full stock of Acuvue contacts and frames by Guess, Tommy Hilfiger, and Calvin Klein helps Dr. Hakim perform more conventional vision enhancements.
