A medical doctor who treats vein disease is called a phlebologist. A Diplomate or Fellow of the American Board of Phlebology (ABPh) is the highest specialty training and education specific to the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. ABPh recognition is not required for providing vein care. A phlebologist can come from any general, surgical, primary care or specialist background. Phlebology training takes the best of a physician’s training and focuses it specifically on the diagnosis and treatment of venous insufficiency. At Rocky Mountain Vein Institute, we are proud to have a team of experts with backgrounds in interventional radiology, family practice, ear, nose and throat (ENT), vascular surgery, and vascular disorders. All of our staff are active members of the American College of Phlebology and are outstanding in their field. We are the only Colorado practice with multiple American Board of Phlebology Diplomates.
Our Founder and Chief Medical Executive, Dr. Gordon F. Gibbs, is a board-certified phlebologist and Mayo-Clinic-fellowship-trained vascular interventional radiologist. His career has centered on diagnosing and treating vascular diseases with minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Gibbs is also a sought after speaker and instructor. He is one of just 11 board-certified phlebologists in Colorado. Our clinics and specialty-trained phlebologists are strategically located throughout Colorado so we can best serve everyone in the Rocky Mountain region.
