Experience the Vein Center Difference
With over 30 years’ experience as a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Barry J. Zadeh is considered by many of his peers to be a world leader in treatment options in the vein and vascular field.
Dr. Zadeh brings years of accomplishments as a vein and vascular surgeon, mastering the newest minimally-invasive endovascular procedures. Dr. Zadeh has performed more than 3,000 open heart surgeries and thousands of thoracic and endovascular surgeries.
Endovascular surgery is a relatively new, less-invasive procedure for treating the two major problems that can develop in blood vessels: aneurysm and narrowing (also called an occlusion or stenosis).
Endovascular surgery treats the problem by using an easily accessible smaller blood vessel to advance a long plastic tube, called a catheter, to the aneurysm or narrowing. The surgeon is guided by X-ray imaging. Endovascular procedures do not require general anesthesia. “This type of surgery is much easier on the patient,” says Dr. Zadeh.
There are also a number of vein and artery solutions, such as the VNUS Closure, and Dr. Zadeh is one of the most experienced doctors in the country performing this procedure. This minimally-invasive procedure seals shut a damaged vein and, once the vein is closed, re-routes blood is to other healthy veins. It has become a useful alternative method for the treatment of varicose veins.
