Welcome to Austin Varicose Vein Specialists, a recognized leader in cosmetic varicose vein treatments for Austin, Texas and the surrounding regions. Our state-of-the-art Varicose Vein Treatment Center in Austin, Texas is devoted exclusively to providing the best available treatment for varicose veins and spider veins. Our founder, Joel G. Gotvald, MD, FACS, RPVI, is an experienced board-certified Cosmetic Vein Specialist whose special areas of interest are aesthetic varicose vein treatments, cosmetic laser vein therapies, and ultrasound guided vein sclerotherapy treatments. His commitment to provide a Center of Excellence for treating varicose veins and spider veins of the legs lead him to establish Austin Vein Specialists, a Varicose Vein Treatment Center dedicated to providing the best quality care in the treatment of vein disorders. Dr. Gotvald is intently focused on patient satisfaction and always sees and treats his patients one-on-one, rather than utilizing nurse practitioners or physician assistants. Our Varicose Vein Center requires that the clinical staff maintain the highest level of vein credentialing available, with national certifications as RVT (Registered Vascular Technolgists) and RPVI (Registered Physicians In Vascular Interpretation).
Dr. Gotvald is double board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and the Vascular Board of the American Board of Surgery, with specialty training in Phlebology (the branch of vascular medicine that deals with veins and their diseases). As a residency and fellowship-trained vascular surgeon and vein specialist, he is considered a local expert in the diagnosis and management of vein disorders of the circulatory system. He has received the Patients’ Choice Award, Compassionate Doctor Award, and is a Healthgrades Recognized Doctor with a five star rating. He is listed in the US News & World Report directory of top vascular surgeons in the nation. He was featured in Austin Monthly magazine this January after being voted Top Doctor in his specialty for 2013. Heath Tap and Castle Connolly Medical also voted Dr. Gotvald the top Vascular & Vein Specialist in Texas in 2013.
Dr. Gotvald received his credentials by performing 6 years of formal surgical and laser training at the leading medical centers in Houston and Dallas. The focus of his training was on minimally-invasive therapies for vascular and vein diseases, including the use of vein lasers, ultrasound-guided varicose vein treatments, radiofrequency vein therapy, and sclerotherapy. He has published several articles pertaining to his work in nationally distributed medical and surgical journals. His vast experience with all of the latest varicose vein technologies helps to ensure that he can provide his patients with the best possible cosmetic results with the least amount of pain and recovery time.
Our physician is nationally recognized as a member of the American College of Surgeons and the Society for Vascular Surgeons. Dr. Gotvald also distinguishes himself by being nationally certified as a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI), reflecting his expertise in vein ultrasound & vascular radiology interpretation. He has personally performed and interpreted thousands of vein ultrasound studies and ultrasound-guided procedures. Dr. Gotvald has always maintained an active hospital and clinical practice, having served the medical community as a physician for over 15 years. He provides vein services for the Seton, St. David’s, and Westlake Hospital systems.
At Austin Vein Specialists, we always utilize the latest state-of-the-art imaging and modern vein treatment options available. Through our comprehensive varicose vein program, we ensure that all of our patients are appropriately evaluated for any possible underlying circulatory disorder that may be contributing to the development of their varicose veins or spider veins. Our methodology allows us to not only appropriately address the obvious cosmetic “surface” problem, but to also treat any underlying venous disorder that may be leading to the development of the unsightly or painful leg veins. This approach helps to minimize the risk of our patients developing recurrent varicose or spider veins in the future.
Our Varicose Vein and Laser Center provides outpatient office-based vein procedures, saving you both time and money. Have your procedure performed in the comfort of our clinic, then walk out of our office afterwards with minimal discomfort and little activity limitations!
