Located in Shawnee Mission, Kansas, the Vein Institute of the Midwest, an affiliate of Vascular Surgery Associates P.A., specializes in state-of-the-art technologies and techniques for the minimally invasive treatment of varicose and spider veins. The techniques are performed in an outpatient setting using local anesthesia and minimal sedation.

An evolution in the treatment of symptomatic varicose vein clusters includes endoluminal thermal ablation. The technique of ultrasound-guided endovenous thermal ablation of the involved veins has replaced the traumatic surgical therapy called ligation and stripping.

Microphlebectomy is used for removing protruding varicose vein clusters by making tiny incisions that heal without scars and are closed with tape.

Most insurance companies will provide full coverage to patients who have worn compression stockings but continue to have symptoms such as pain, fullness, aching, swelling, phlebitis, venous stasis ulcers or restless legs.

Sclerotherapy is the precise placement of a chemical solution that seals and destroys spider veins causing them to disappear.


We are pleased to offer several services using the Gemini laser system to include:

Eliminate unsightly spider veins and broken capillaries

Enhanced skin rejuvenation and elimination of vascular and pigmented irregularities

Our staff at the Vein Institute of the Midwest is committed to compassionate, professional, comprehensive treatment of all vascular patients in a comfortable, friendly office.
