Dr. Swan was introduced to vein care and vein procedures during Vascular Surgery fellowship in 2002.
“Back during my fellowship in 2002 during the early stages for development of new devices to treat vein disease, I was initially skeptical of the treatment. Very quickly, I was amazed and overwhelmed by the consistent and rapid improvement in patient symptoms. I knew this would be a must in my practice as a vascular surgeon”
