The deep expertise of Venia is what sets us apart. We’ve done over 5000 major varicose vein procedures, and, in fact, we’ve been providing vein and aesthetic services longer than anyone in the region. We recognize that when considering any service in the range that we offer, one must have utter confidence in the medical staff. As Venia is led by Dr. Douglas Stafford, a board certified vascular surgeon with unrivaled credentials and experience, we maintain a superior level of proficiency in these areas.

Dr. Stafford has been practicing general and vascular surgery in Coeur d’Alene for nearly two decades, and is one of only 330 physicians to be board certified in phlebology. Yet just as important as his talents is his ability to truly connect with patients. Dr. Stafford has created a reassuring, calming environment, where taking complete care of patients is a ceaseless priority.
