For more than ten years, the Reno Vein Clinic has been staffed by Dr. Robert F. Merchant, Jr. and more recently joined by Dr. John W. Daake. Both are Board Certified in Phlebology, and vascular surgeons who are dedicated solely to the treatment and correction of vein disorders. Our facility was the first west of the Mississippi to perform Radiofrequency Closure, the modern alternative to vein stripping; our cumulative experience in this procedure is among the largest in the nation. The treatment techniques are minimally invasive and are refined so that they can be performed on a walk-in, walk-out basis under IV sedation. Our patients are treated at our AAAHC and State Licensed Surgery Center, the only surgery center licensed specifically for IV sedation.
