Texas Vein & Cosmetic Specialists –
Leading The Way In Vein Medicine
Welcome to Texas Vein & Cosmetic Specialists. Dr. Michael Bardwil, our founder, is a board certified vascular surgeon and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He specializes in the treatment of veins and addresses issues related to vascular disease. Within our website, you will find comprehensive information about vein disease and you will learn about your options for vein treatment.
Vascular Surgery is the specialty dedicated to the treatment of arteries, veins, and lymphatics. The reason people seek evaluation by a vascular surgeon regarding their legs is for evaluation of their circulation. You may notice bulging veins, spider veins, pain with walking, pain at night, leg swelling with or without skin discoloration, or a non-healing wound.
Unlike many vein centers that have popped up in the area over the past 10 years, Texas Vein & Cosmetic Specialists is operated by a board certified vascular surgeon. As a board certified vascular surgeon, Dr. Michael Bardwil will be able to evaluate your symptoms and determine if they are circulatory in nature, and whether or not you are a candidate for treatment at our state-of-the-art vein clinic. Dr. Bardwil will evaluate your veins and your arterial circulation and determine the best treatment plan specifically for you. In addition to varicose veins and spider veins, Dr. Bardwil also treats venous ulcers, non-healing leg wounds, and lymphedema. With over 25 years of experience in vascular medicine, Dr. Bardwil operates one of the most established and renowned vein clinics in the greater Houston metropolitan area.
Get Your Legs Back
Dr. Bardwil can give you back the beautiful legs you once had by using the latest techniques to combat unsightly veins. For the treatment of varicose veins, Dr. Bardwil performs the EndoLuminal Laser Ablation of the Saphenous vein (ELAS) and Ambulatory Phlebectomy. For the treatment of spider veins, Dr. Bardwil primarily utilizes Sclerotherapy and may also incorporate the use of a surface laser and the VeinGogh™ device when appropriate.
If you’ve been living with ugly varicose or spider veins, or if you’ve been uncomfortable showing off your legs, call us today. There’s almost no vein that Texas Vein and Cosmetic Specialists can’t treat.
A Thorough Evaluation
Evaluation begins with a thorough medical history and physical examination with emphasis on your veins. When indicated, Dr. Bardwil will perform a venous duplex doppler ultrasound. The ultrasound exam is done with you in a standing position to better assess the function of your veins. This technique allows him to increase the accuracy of the exam, and thus, the effectiveness of your treatment. All surgical and non-surgical procedures to treat veins are performed in our vein center, utilizing either topical or local anesthesia. Treatment times range from 10-60 minutes depending on the procedure. Normal activities can be resumed almost immediately, and patients are encouraged to walk and be active.
Veins cannot be evaluated without evaluating the entire circulatory system, and as such, Dr. Bardwil will evaluate your arterial circulation. Services also include the management of lymphedema.
