How Do I Know if My Discolored Skin and Ulcers are Due to Vein Disease?

Why Vein Specialists?

Dr. Magnant opened the doors at Vein Specialists in Fort Myers in 2006 with a commitment to focus his vascular surgery practice 100% on the modern evaluation and minimally invasive therapy of venous disease. Vein Specialists has remained focused on venous disease management since day 1, and has continued to grow to meet the demands of southwest Florida over its history. The Bonita Springs office was opened in 2014 to better serve the patients of southern Lee and Collier counties. Dr. Magnant works alongside 4 advanced medical providers including 3 nurse practitioners and 1 Physician Assistant. The Vascular laboratory employs 8 full and part time registered vascular sonographers or technologists who are responsible for performing the diagnostic ultrasound examinations. Both offices are accredited Vein Centers and Vascular laboratories, certified by the prestigious Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

With the introduction of endovenous ablation technology in 2000, patients once thought to be too high a surgical risk for vein stripping became candidates for ultrasound investigation and minimally invasive, outpatient endovenous ablation procedures. Vein specialists treats the full spectrum of venous disease from spider veins to venous ulcers and everything in between including varicose veins, swollen legs, stasis pigmentation and stasis dermatitis. Dr. Magnant believes he owes it to his patients to offer the most advanced and time tested treatment technologies available including ClosureFAST (radiofrequency) and Venacure (LASER) thermal ablation techniques as well as Venaseal (medical adhesive) vein closure. Vein Specialists also offers ultrasound guided Varithena and Asclera injection sclerotherapy for medical venous disease indications in addition to liquid sclerotherapy for cosmetic indications. Dr. Magnant developed an interest in diagnosing and treating pelvic vein obstructions (iliac vein compression syndrome, May Thurner syndrome, pelvic congestion syndrome) in 2016 when he noted a small percentage of his patients were not candidates for the traditional closure techniques, yet still appeared to suffer from significant venous hypertension. This led him to construct and open a state-of-the-art interventional suite in May 2017 at the Fort Myers office location where he has offering selected patients diagnostic intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and IVUS directed iliac vein stent procedures.

Vein Specialists’ outpatient approach to the comprehensive management of venous disease and their performance of the full spectrum of minimally invasive venous procedures under local anesthesia with optional oral or IV conscious sedation (for IVUS cases, enables patients to avoid the risks of general or regional anesthesia, and other hospital-related inconveniences and ensures a safe, effective, efficient and nearly painless treatment and recovery.

Our A's of Success

1. Ability
Dr. Magnant and his staff of professionals have received the highest level of training in their respective areas, and continuous quality improvement efforts ensure that Vein Specialists is able to expertly diagnose and treat your venous problems with the latest available and proven technology. Both office locations are accredited Vein Centers and Vascular Laboratories by the prestigious Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

2. Affability
During the course of their care, patients often praise the positive, caring and compassionate attitude of the Vein Specialists’ staff and the unique, family like office environment, where patients really are treated as individuals.

3. Availability
Vein Specialists’ staff fully appreciate that their first responsibility is patient care. Their availability to patients and referring physicians for timely consultation and treatment is yet another defining attribute of Vein Specialists’ successful practice. Vein Specialists is a collection of professionals working together in an effort to make your patient journey as pleasant and efficient as possible. Dr. Magnant works in tandem with his Advanced Medical Providers, who provide initial new patient consultations and follow-up visits to discuss ultrasound results (interpreted and read by Dr. Magnant) and treatment options. All diagnostic and follow-up ultrasounds are performed by our highly qualified registered vascular sonographers. Dr. Magnant performs all of the venous procedures, including endovenous ablations, microphlebectomy and IVUS cases. Most of the sclerotherapy is performed by his advanced medical providers (nurse practitioners and physician assistants). This team approach allows for the maximization of the individual talents of each team member and ensures as efficient a time line as possible for your vein evaluation and treatment completion.

Our Distinction

Once a patient has been full evaluated, the ultrasound results will be reviewed with each individual patient and treatment options will be presented. Our practice is 100% focused on vein evaluation and treatment and we are proud to have earned accreditation in the Vein Center and Vascular laboratory categories from the prestigious Intersocietal accreditation commission (IAC). Vein Specialists is one of just a handful of outpatient vein centers in the entire state of Florida which holds this coveted status as an IAC Accredited Vein Center, in both our Fort Myers and Bonita Springs locations. Vein Specialists’ state-of-the-art facilities are designed to ensure the highest quality of care, most current technology and finest clinical experience possible for patients. Dr. Magnant has trained physicians from around the country in the latest vein treatment technologies as part of Medtronic’s Centers of Excellence program.

Our Standard

Vein Specialists is 100% dedicated to the scientific evaluation and ethical treatment of patients with venous disorders. Led by Dr. Joseph G. Magnant, he and his team of Advanced Medical Providers and Registered Vascular Sonographers understand that the venous system varies between patients and consists of both deep and superficial venous systems and a network of connecting or perforating veins. As such, each patient’s venous anatomy must be fully evaluated by noninvasive methods to determine the underlying cause of patients’ signs and symptoms. Furthermore, ultrasound technology, in well trained hands, allows for the stratification of the severity and extent of venous insufficiency which is critical to determining the most appropriate treatment plan.

Our Mission

Our mission at Vein Specialists is to evaluate, educate, empower and enhance patients’ lives and functional well being by scientifically and objectively identifying venous problems and offering the most ethical and effective solution.
