Dr. Richard Feinberg leads the UW Health Vein Center at 1 South Park and is board certified in vascular surgery, with over 25 years of experience treating venous disease.

It is estimated that almost half of the adult female population are troubled by spider veins or varicose veins and general venous disease. Heredity, pregnancy, weight gain, hormonal shifts and certain occupations may contribute to the formation of small veins that lie close to the surface of the skin.

Dr. Feinberg offers our patients the benefit of minimally invasive diagnostic tools and techniques to treat venous disease, providing patients the highest level of comfort and relief so they may return home with desired results and minimal pain, downtime, and scarring.
