Welcome to Dr. Crowther's Exclusive Vein Care
Exclusive Vein Care of San Antonio
Exclusive Vein Care is the full-time medical practice of Alan Crowther, MD that is dedicated to the treatment of spider, reticular (blue) and varicose veins. Dr. Crowther uses state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to treat most vein problems in a comfortable office setting. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine and is an active member of the American College of Phlebology.
In order to provide the best possible results for his patients, Dr. Crowther personally manages all aspects of his patients’ vein care. As a registered vascular ultrasonographer and registered physician in vascular interpretation (RVS, RVT, RPVI), he does his own vein mapping. This allows him to make the most accurate diagnosis of vein disorders and best tailor treatment for each individual.
All treatments at Exclusive Vein Care are performed by Dr. Crowther. He specializes in minimally invasive techniques including endovenous laser ablation, endovenous chemical ablation, sclerotherapy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and microphlebectomy along with cosmetic sclerotherapy. This gives him the flexibility to handle many different vein problems efficiently with minimal patient down time.
An essential but often overlooked part of vein care is patient follow-up. Vein anatomy and vein disease are extremely complex and are unique to each individual. It is not uncommon for secondary vein disorders to be unmasked after treatment of the most significant problems. Attentive and thorough follow-up care facilitates prompt management of previously hidden disorders, if needed, and leads to the best long-term results.
Many people avoid vein treatment with sclerotherapy because they are uncomfortable with the idea of injections. We use several measures to overcome this problem. In addition to a relaxing and comfortable environment, both oral and IV conscious sedation are available for those who would prefer one of these alternatives. Most people find with the first treatment that there is minimal discomfort and that sedatives are not needed.
It is our policy at Exclusive Vein Care to provide as much information as possible before any procedures are performed. Free consultations with Dr. Crowther are available. During this consultation he will do a screening physical exam and ultrasound screening, if required. He will then discuss various treatment options and his recommendations.
