Dr. Ruess' Care Philosophy

see website: www.fivestarvein.com

Dr. Ruess says...

After practicing Cardiac, Pulmonary, and Vascular Surgery [of the Arteries and Veins] for 25 years I retired in Nevada. 2 years later I opened a Veins only practice. This is all we do at the Five Star Vein Institute. I became the 1st doctor in Southern Nevada to become Certified by the American Board of Phlebology, which is now called the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Of the many "vein doctors" practicing in Las Vegas, there are only 3 [as of this writing] who are so Certified.

Our goal at Five Star Vein Institute is to provide quality work to those patients suffering with Venous Disorders, using modern, up-to-date methods.
