RVC Experience

Our Doctor

Established in 1999, the Reno Vein Clinic was the first west of the Mississippi to perform Radiofrequency Closure,which made vein stripping obsolete. Various procedures are done, but all through tiny incisions under local anesthetic. There is minimal pain and most people can return to regular activities in a few days!
