Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Benson's Care Philosophy

We believe that quality state of the art comprehensive vein care is best provided by board-certified phlebologists (vein specialists). Our phlebologists have unsurpassed training and experience in maintaining vein health. Dr. Peter Benson, MD was the principal author of the "Guidelines for Varicose Vein Surgery" for the American College of Phlebology, delineating the standard of care in the US. Because there are only 420 board-certified phlebologists in the US, other clinics employ general surgeons, obstetricians, dermatologists, radiologists, emergency physicians, physician assistants and even nurses to perform vein treatment. At the Michigan Vein Institute, all patients are evaluated and treated only by board-certified phlebologists. There is no better measure of the quality of our work than the fact that over 35% of our new patients are referred to us by current or former patients, often entrusting us with the care of their mother or grandmother. There is no greater compliment.
