Triple board-certified in vascular surgery, general surgery and phlebology, Schwartz was one of the first Kansas City-based vascular surgeons to offer patients minimally-invasive laser vein ablations performed in the comfort and convenience of his practice in lieu of painful hospital surgeries, which had been the standard of care up until that time.

During the last several years, the vein treatment industry has exploded with doctors from all different backgrounds and training entering the field.  “There are many options for vein doctors in our area, with Kansas City having one of the largest concentrations of “vein specialists” and vein clinics in the Midwest,” said Schwartz. “There are many physicians who are “board-certified” in other specialties and refer to themselves as “vein specialists”, but few of these providers are vascular surgeons or have extensive education or training, specifically, in vein disease. Up until a few years ago, only vascular surgeons would treat vein disease, but as access to in-office vein treatment has increased, so has the number and different types of doctors entering the field without any previous vascular training.”
