Mountain Vein Care opens in Edwards

Daily staff report

EDWARDS — Dr. Carl Dando, MD, has announced the opening of Mountain Vein Care at 56 Edwards Village Boulevard, Suite 226, in Edwards (second floor of the Edwards Corner complex, next to Dish Restaurant).

Mountain Vein Care specializes in the treatment of patients with varicose veins of the legs. As Dando points out, most people with venous disease do not actually have large, ropey veins on their legs. Rather, they present with symptoms of venous disease. Dando states, “common complaints of patients with venous issues include tired, achy legs, leg cramps, and restless leg symptoms, along with swelling of the legs.”

However, patients do not need to have all these symptoms in order to have a vein problem. A diagnostic ultrasound is performed in the office on every patient to determine if a vein issue is present. All of the procedures that are offered at Mountain Vein Care are office-based, involve no downtime, and are generally covered by insurance. The Mountain Vein Care staff encourages patients to walk and remain active immediately after any procedure.

Dando brings a wealth of experience to the valley in regards to evaluating and managing venous problems. He has practiced vein medicine exclusively since 2005 and has successfully performed over 10,000 laser vein surgeries. Dando is double board-certified in venous medicine and internal medicine. He also holds multiple certifications in ultrasound scanning and is one of the few physicians in the country to hold all these credentials. As a national trainer for Sciton Laser, he instructs physicians from around the country in vein techniques.

Dando emphasizes that Mountain Vein Care is unique because every patient who comes to the office will be personally seen and evaluated by Dando himself.

“We recognize that there are many places that patients can go to get treatment for their vein problems, both locally and in Denver,” he said. “What sets us apart from many other clinics is that I will personally see each patient. If a patient requires office-based laser surgery, I will personally perform the procedure. I do not delegate those responsibilities to non-physicians”.

Free vein screenings with Dando are always available. Make an appointment by calling 970-766-8346 (VEIN).
