Las Vegas - Whether patients seek treatment of problem veins and vascular lesions for cosmetic or medical reasons, dermatologists have many tools at their disposal that offer alternatives to hospital-based procedures, said Margaret Weiss, M.D., who is in private practice at the Maryland Laser, Skin & Vein Institute and Dermatology Associates, Hunt Valley, Md. Dr. Weiss, a specialist in the treatment of unwanted veins, provided an overview of office-based treatment of veins and vascular lesions at the Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference here. She is assistant professor of dermatology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
