As Maine Vein Center Associates has grown, we have continually monitored our results and perform annual reviews of our statistics to ensure our patients receive the quality of care they deserve. On reviewing over 5,000 cases (3,700 VenefitTM closure procedures) and (1,460 phlebectomy procedures), we would like to share with you our complication rates, which are significantly lower than the national averages.

By using the Venous Clinical Severity Score, the national standard for measuring and tracking venous disease, we found that our patients experienced a 97% improvement in their scores during the course of their treatment. These results are no coincidence. Through our commitment to patient care, we have been able to assure this increase in quality of life.

 

 

 

Sincerely,
