Get your legs done right the first time.

First, get an opinion from an experienced vascular surgeon. With varicose veins, one  vascular treatment session may be all you’ll need. If a “vein center” or other provider recommends multiple procedure sessions for your varicose veins, that  could mean more out-of-pocket expense for you. Get your legs done right the first time by North Shore vein and vascular specialist Dr. John Golan, who 17 years ago became the first Chicago-area vascular surgeon to do laser vein  procedures.

Why North Shore Vascular?


The legs you want — the first time

In the end, it’s about results. The legs you’d hoped for. We take a conservative approach to treatment, not four different procedures when one will solve the problem. We believe in getting it right from the start. Here’s what some of our patients have to say: “Dr. Golan… is awesome…it’s clear he’s the top in his field…he was simply the best on the North Shore…the results are terrific…thrilled with the results… no more ugly veins and discomfort…very happy with the results…wish I would have known about Dr. Golan a lot earlier…”  Read more

Dr. John Golan is the vascular surgeon in the Chicago area with 30 years of experience treating veins and arteries.


John Golan, MD

Dr. John Golan has 30 years of experience treating veins and arteries. Seventeen years ago, he became the first physician in the Chicago area to provide laser treatment for varicose veins (EVLT) — and now has trained more than 400 physicians on using the procedure. He is a board-certified vascular surgeon and a fellow in the American College of Surgeons with multiple hospital affiliations. He is also a senior clinician educator at the Pritzker School of Medicine. Over the past two decades, he’s consistently been named one of Chicago’s top vascular surgeons. Few “vein centers” or “vein clinics” have board-certified vascular surgeons doing their procedures. That’s unfortunate because vascular surgeons are the only physicians uniquely trained to treat medical conditions involving veins and arteries.

Independent private practice in a comfortable and caring setting.

We’re unusual in that we’re not a “vein center” or “vein clinic,” nor are we part of a huge healthcare company or hospital system. At North Shore Vascular, you won’t be just another number. You’ll be a VIP from your first consultation through your follow-up care. We are conveniently located in Northfield.
