Facing the lack of sufficient attention to the common condition of varicose vein disease by the medical community at large, Dr. Fattahi became committed to mastering the field of phlebology by focusing on new effective non-surgical treatment methods for varicose veins & unsightly vein problems, a commitment that started in 1991. Since 1991, he has provided more than 60,000 successful vein treatment sessions using non-surgical modern methods. Dr. Fattahi is amongst the first physicians in US to be certified by American Board of Phlebology. He is also certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Fattahi is the inventor of the new "Foam-Wash Sclerotherapy" treatment method (Patent Pending), intended to safely eliminate large varicose veins, while reducing the risk of deep vein thrombosis. Dr. Fattahi first presented his invention at the 2010 Sclerotherpay Conference in Italy. He is the first physician in Northern California to implement the clinical use of both major breakthroughs (VNUS Closure & ELVeS/EVLT). Dr. Fattahi is also one of the first physicians in California to use Foam-Sclerotherapy in the treatment of different types of varicose veins. Internationally, each of these treatments constitute a great advancement in non-surgical therapy of varicose veins, & great alternatives to traditional ligation & stripping surgery for most patients.

Dr. Fattahi is one of the first two physicians in San Francisco Bay Area to pass the certification exam of The American Board of Phlebology (the first phlebology board certification exam held in the world in May 2008), and the certification exam of RPhS (Registered Phlebology Sonographer) held for the first time by Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI) in 2010.

Dr. Fattahi completed his internship & residency training at ?St. Barnabas Hospital, affiliated with New York Hospital Cornell University in 1987. He is certified by American Board of Phlebology & American Board of Internal Medicine. He has provided presentations & training workshops to numerous physicians & surgeons both at his clinic & at major medical conferences & seminars in the field of phlebology (modern treatment of varicose veins).

Dr. Fattahi is the first physician to introduce "vulvar & para-labia varicose veins as an origin of "leg varicosity". He made his presentation of this common, yet ignored, condition & its simple treatment at the American College of Phlebology conference in 2005. His treatment has offered great results for many women who suffer from this annoying form of varicose vein. Dr. Fattahi's invention of "Foam-Washout Sclerotherapy" is intended to make Foam-Sclerotherapy of large varicose veins safer, by minimizing risk of deep vein thrombosis. Dr. Fattahi believes in the case of varicose veins, best results can only be achieved through addressing the source of the problem, in addition to correcting superficial visible veins. Considering the complexity of most cases of varicose veins, good results can only be assured if the treating physician has recognized this fact through vast knowledge & experience. Unfortunately physicians who work in this field as a "side-job" will most often provide unsuccessful or incomplete treatments, resulting in dissatisfaction & continuation of patients symptoms.

Dr. Fattahi is committed to make high quality modern treatments affordable & available to everyone suffering from both painful varicose veins & unsightly spider vein conditions.
