The Vein Center of Southwest Louisiana has moved to a new office just
down the road from its former location in the main office of Imperial Health.
The new, larger office is at 711 Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive in Lake Charles, and
will open on Tuesday, May 16.
The Vein Center, an affiliate of Imperial Health, is under the
direction of Carl Fastabend, MD, FACC, the only full-time comprehensive vein
specialist in Louisiana. Dr. Fastabend has practiced
interventional cardiology for over 35 years and developed a special interest in
peripheral vascular disease. He founded the Vein Center of Southwest Louisiana in 2011 with
the goal of providing state-of-the-art care.
Dr. Fastabend and his experienced team of vein
specialists offer comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and advanced, minimally-invasive
treatment for a variety of vein disorders including varicose veins, spider
veins, venous reflux disease and pelvic vein disorder. Treatment options
include sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, radiofrequency
ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy and venous stents, among others.
The new office features a
larger lobby, two procedure rooms, a recovery room, a cosmetic suite,
conference room, and ample, adjacent parking.
Dr. Fastabend is board certified in internal medicine and cardiology, and he is a
fellow of the American College of Cardiology and Society of Cardiac Angiography
and Intervention. He is a member of the American College of Phlebology and
Lymphatic Medicine, and also earned special recognition in ultrasound through a
Registered Vascular Physician Interpretation Certification. Dr. Fastabend is a
frequent guest speaker at conferences across the country, and physicians visit
the Vein Center to observe modern venous treatment techniques.
