Meet Dr. Scott T. Koppel

Dr. Scott Koppel - Vein Specialist

Dr. Scott T. Koppel has been the driving force behind Advanced Venous Solutions since its inception. Many of the patients Dr. Koppel treated complained of leg pain, swelling or varicose veins. This led Dr. Koppel to search for a minimally invasive procedure that could alleviate his patients’ problems without the pain and long recovery time associated with traditional vein-stripping surgery. He found the answer in VNUS Closure®, and became the first physician in the region to begin using this revolutionary procedure.
