CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich.—McLaren Macomb announced the opening of the McLaren Macomb Vein Center in Clinton Township for the treatment of all forms of chronic venous disease (CVD). Under the direction of Dr. Gregory Gaborek and Dr. Lynn Mathia, all patients will be evaluated and procedures will be performed by these board-certified general and vascular surgeons.
The McLaren Macomb Vein Center invites the public to attend an open house on March 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to meet the physicians, learn about the services offered and explore the space.
Caused by an improper functioning of the valves in leg veins, there are 200,000 cases of chronic venous disease reported in the United States each year. With blood beginning to pool in the legs, the condition can lead to painful and unsightly spider and varicose veins, swelling and skin color changes.
“We opened our location with the simple goal of lessening our patients’ pain and discomfort,” says Dr. Gaborek. “Without a doubt, there is a need for a venous disease treatment center—these conditions and their symptoms respond to treatment. Through this office, we are now able to offer full diagnostic services and perform a range of procedures, addressing and treating every symptom.”
CVD cannot be cured and if left untreated can last a lifetime. However, the condition’s symptoms respond to non- and minimally-invasive treatments—all performed on-site at the McLaren Macomb Vein Center, and include:
• Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA)
• Laser vein treatment
“This facility being under the direction of vascular surgeons makes us unique in that the more complex vein procedures will be performed by vascular surgeons as opposed to other physicians,” Dr. Mathia said. “We are here to be a resource for our patients, making sure they get through the entire process and ensuring they have confidence in the treatment they receive.”
The McLaren Macomb Vein Center features two non-invasive vascular laboratories for diagnostic testing in addition to the multiple exam and procedure rooms. Patients do not need a physician’s referral to make an appointment.
The McLaren Macomb Vein Center is located at 38770 Garfield, Suite 100 (just south of 17 Mile Road) in Clinton Township. To learn more about the McLaren Macomb Vein Center or the schedule an appointment, visit mclaren.org/macombveincenter or call (586) 349-1640.
