Northside Vein Care Clinic Chicago

Welcome to NorthSide Vein Care, a leading vein clinic for Chicago and the Chicagoland area specializing exclusively in the medical and cosmetic treatment of chronic venous insufficiency, including varicose veins and spider veins.

Board-certified surgeon Dr. Barry Summers established the Vein Center in Chicago to provide affordable, high quality, state-of-the-art treatment for varicose veins. All patients are evaluated and treated personally, both medically and, when necessary, surgically. In the majority of instances, only minimally invasive techniques are used.

The Vein Center relies heavily on minimally invasive techniques because it is safe, virtually painless, inexpensive and effective, and patients return to normal activities right away. Relief is almost immediate and people delight in what is achieved in a few short outpatient clinical visits. No convalescence is required as veins disappear while patients go about their usual activities.

Since no one treatment is ever appropriate for all conditions, many other techniques and procedures are available. Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Ultrasound-guided Sclerotherapy, Endovenous Laser Therapy, and Motorized Powered Phlebectomy (Trivex Procedure) are other minimally invasive techniques utilized for the treatment of varicose vein disease.

Whether treatment is for varicose veins and you are looking for an alternative to ligation and stripping surgery, or whether is strictly cosmetic, choice of a practitioner is not to be taken lightly. Sclerotherapy for even spider veins is best administered by specially trained physicians. And without a doubt, varicose veins are best entrusted to surgeons knowledgeable about the underlying physiology that causes varicose veins and about how and when to preserve the veins in bypass surgery.

We try our best to encourage mutual understanding. We pledge every effort to explain everything to you regarding your condition, medicines, treatments or any concerns you might have. If you have questions, or if something is not clear to you, please do not hesitate to ask. Our goal is to provide you with prompt and professional care in a pleasant environment. We are dedicated to quality care in every respect.
