“Often, we can accomplish more in one laser vein treatment session than in four sessions done at a vein center or clinic.”

- Dr. John Golan, Board Certified Vascular Surgeon

Get your legs done right the first time.

First, get an opinion from an experienced vascular surgeon. With varicose veins, the first treatment session may be all you’ll need. If a “vein center” or other provider says you’ll need multiple sessions that could mean a lot more time and out-of-pocket expense. Get your legs done right the first time by Dr. John Golan, 15 years ago the first Chicago area physician to do laser vein procedures.

John Golan, MD

Dr. John Golan has 30 years of experience treating veins & arteries. Fifteen years ago, he was the first physician in the Chicago area to provide laser treatment for varicose veins (EVLT) – and 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 and is 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.
