Who We Are
The Vein Clinic is a specialty clinic of Upper Peninsula Superior Vascular and Interventional Specialists (UPSVIS), established for the purpose of treatment of varicose veins, deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and other venous diseases of the extremities. Continuing their pioneering ways, UPSVIS formed the first specialty Vein Clinic in Michigan in 2001 under the direction of Dr. Mehall. For years patients with varicose veins and other venous disease, affecting up to 25% of all women and 15% of all men, which may or may not lead to bulging varicose veins, had been under-diagnosed or had been presented with limited, incomplete, or undesirable treatment options. The mission of The Vein Clinic is to utilize state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment options to present patients with a comprehensive treatment plan, which will offer the best possible outcome with minimized patient discomfort and possibly shortened recovery times. Since its inception, the Vein Clinic has performed over 10,000 vein procedures, making its physician and staff one of the most experienced venous programs in the Upper Peninsula and throughout Michigan. Dr. Mehall is board-certified by and a member of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Experience matters.
What We Offer
The Vein Clinic currently offers services in Marquette, MI in our new private office location on W. Washington St. (behind the new hospital). We offer many treatments and procedures, from compression stockings to venous ablations and will treat something as small as a cosmetic spider vein to something as life threatening as pulmonary embolism (a blood clot traveling from your deep veins to your lung). The Vein Clinic staff also utilizes its close relationship with other medical sub-specialists to make additional services readily available to our patients. Intensive wound care treatment is available with extended care offered through our relationship with specialty wound care programs in Northern Michigan. Surgical and medical consultation is also available for the rare patient who may not have good minimally invasive treatment options or who has a non-venous etiology for his or her problem.
What is Venous Insufficiency
Many patients don’t realize that Varicose Veins are truly a medical disorder (not a cosmetic one). Dr. Mehall is interviewed here discussing varicose veins and the medical issue related to them.
