Editorial Reviews

Norman Bein, MD, FACS
SAY GOODBYE TO VARICOSE AND SPIDER VEINS NOW! VERY CLEARLY AND INTELLIGENTLY
explains the venous insufficiency disease process, the revolutionary new
treatment options available today, and the results patients should and
should not expect after treatment. It is an excellent overview of the field of
modern venous medicine that will be equally valuable to prospective patients
and referring physicians.
Marcus A. Jimenez, MD, FACS
VEIN DISEASE AFFECTS A LARGE PORTION OF OUR POPULATION. UNTIL RECENTLY,
the treatments were often worse than the disease. Fortunately, the public
and the medical profession are slowly learning that new, elegant solutions
exist for treating these common problems.
Dr. Martin does an excellent job of closing the information gap for both
patients and physicians. I have treated thousands of patients with vein disease,
and I learned new things by reading this book. Written in a

I am truly impressed at the amount of information in the book and Dr. Martin’s

this book to anyone who has venous disease or questions about it.
Armen Roupenian, MD, FACS
RAPID ADVANCES IN THE NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT OF SPIDER AND VARICOSE VEINS
have created tremendous benefits to patients, but they also have generated
quite a bit of confusion. Overwhelmed with information from the web and
other sources, patients often have difficulty sorting fact from “marketing”
fiction. Consequently, they are unable to talk intelligently with physicians
about treatment options.
I heartily recommend Dr. Martin’s outstanding book for a

Meet the Author

Greg Martin, MD, is a general surgeon certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Phlebology. The latter board, which was established in 2008, recognizes modern vein medicine and surgery as an important new specialty. He is also a fellow with the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American College of Phlebology.

After earning his Doctor of Medicine degree at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston in 1986, Dr. Martin fulfilled his surgery internship and residency requirements from 1986 to 1991 at Northwestern University in Chicago, where he served as chief surgery resident during his final year.

Dr. Martin is among the more experienced vein specialists in the world. Since 1986 he has performed more than 6,000 varicose vein procedures and tens of thousands of spider vein procedures.

The past ten years have witnessed extraordinary medical breakthroughs in the treatment of vein disease. Dr. Martin began studying these revolutionary new techniques in 2003 under Dr. Ron Bush of the Midwest Vein & Laser Center in Dayton, Ohio. Dr. Bush is one of the pioneers and leading educators in the treatment of vein diseases and one of the foremost authorities in the field.

In early 2004, Dr. Martin opened a state-of-the-art vein treatment center in Valdosta, Georgia, and in 2005 he began devoting his full-time energies to treating vein patients. In 2006, he opened a second vein treatment center in Brunswick, Georgia.

    Get the Info You Need!

    One of the biggest problems I frequently encounter in my practice of vein medicine is the tremendous amount of misinformation that exists, not only amongst the general public, but also within the medical community. Sadly, many people are completely unaware of the advanced, minimally invasive techniques that are available today for treating venous disease safely, quickly and effectively. I constantly encounter patients who are being told they will just have to live with their vein problems, or that all they can do is wear compression stockings, or that their only option is to have one of those painful, traumatic vein-stripping procedures that are now considered obsolete. Unfortunately, patients still hear these comments even from their family physicians. None of these things could be further from the truth. Dr. Greg Martin has done an exceptional job of displacing these false notions with accurate facts about vein disease and today's methods for treating it. Say Goodbye to Varicose & Spider Veins Now! is very clear, concise, understandable, and enjoyable to read. It promises to be an outstanding learning tool for the general public and a valuable resource for medical professionals. Craig I.

    Great new resource

    Dr. Martin has performed a true service for the millions of Americans suffering from venous disease. Having treated thousands of patients with this problem, I can truly say that this book can illuminate the subject for patient and physician alike. Dr. Martin was one of the first physicians to devote his practice to the treatment of these disorders and that experience is obvious on every page. Written in an easy-to-read, conversational tone, you will find yourself learning about the modern techniques that have revolutionized the treatment of varicose and spider veins. I highly recommend this book to anyone who suffers from venous disease or knows someone who does.
