Comprehensive Vein Care

Mountain Vein Care is a specialty medical practice whose mission is to diagnose and treat patients with lower extremity venous disease. Our practice focuses exclusively on treating varicose veins. In our office, all treatments are done with only local anesthesia in the leg. Patients do not require sedation. In fact, we encourage our patients to resume normal activities immediately after any procedure. There is no downtime associated with any treatment!

Mountain Vein Care was founded by Dr. Carl Dando, Medical Director, who has practiced Venous medicine exclusively since 2006. He has successfully performed over 17,000 laser vein surgeries and 30,000 sclerotherapy sessions. Dr. Dando is a Diplomat of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine and a Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Dando’s background as a board-certified Internist allows him to provide exceptional diagnostic capabilities to his patients. Having previously practiced primary care medicine for over fifteen years, he brings a personal, patient-centered emphasis to the practice.

Our primary procedure is endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of abnormal veins. This involves placing a thin laser fiber into the affected vein under ultrasound guidance.

Phlebectomy is an in-office procedure used to remove large, bulging surface varicose veins through tiny needle punctures. The tiny needle punctures will fade, and there will be no residual scars.

Our practice offers sclerotherapy, both ultrasound-guided and visual sclerotherapy. This involves injecting a small amount of a medication, called a sclerosant, into the abnormal vein.

Patient Information


The initial visit is called the CONSULT. This visit takes about one hour and will be billed to your insurance company.  During this appointment, a medical history and physical exam will be taken. The primary task to be completed during this visit is a lower extremity venous ultrasound. This test forms the “roadmap” for all subsequent vein treatments.

For those patients with known varicose veins, we suggest a full consultation to determine the extent of your condition and to discuss treatment options. At the consultation, we will collect your insurance information and bill your insurance company for that service.
