Minneapolis Vascular Physicians is a unique practice in that we are the only local group to integrate vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists for a more comprehensive approach to care. We also remain independent so we have the flexibility to work with our patients and referring providers to determine the most convenient and cost effective hospital or outpatient setting. We have multiple clinic locations in the metro, as well as several hospital affiliations. 

Minneapolis Vein Center ( MVC) specializes in state of the art treatment of medical and cosmetic vascular conditions, primarily for patients with varicose or spider veins. At MVC we believe there is not a one-size-fits-all treatment option, so each of our patients receives a tailored treatment plan.  MVC offers the most innovative, minimally invasive and cost effective treatments available.  We are the only clinic to offer more than one option to treat varicose veins. MVC is owned and operated by board-certified, fellowship trained interventional radiologists who are experts in image guided procedures( i.e. vein treatments and pain management).  The interventional radiology experts at MVC have been providing outstanding vein care to the community since 2005.
