   Kansas City's Original Vein Center

   Dr. Craig Schwartz, owner and medical director of Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz, is a leader in the office-based treatment of vein disease. In 2003, Dr. Schwartz was one of the first Kansas City-based vascular surgeons to offer patients a minimally invasive, in-office vein treatment option to painful hospital surgeries, which was the standard of care at that time. 

   There are many options for vein doctors in our area, with Kansas City having one of the largest concentrations of “vein specialists” in the Midwest. There are many physicians who are “board certified” in other specialties and refer to themselves as “vein specialists,” but few of these providers are vascular surgeons or have extensive education or training, specifically, in vein disease. 

   Known as “KC’s Vein Guy,” Dr. Schwartz has performed more than 12,000 vein procedures, been named one of America’s Top Surgeons in 2008, 2014, 2015 and 2016, and was voted Kansas City Super Doctor in 2013, 2014, and 2015. He holds triple board certifications in Vascular Surgery, General Surgery and Phlebology, and is further certified in ultrasound as both an RPVI and RVT, possessing both the knowledge and years of experience patients should expect from their vein doctor. Dr. Schwartz was also in the very first class of physicians who obtained certification and diplomate status in the area of Phlebology (study of vein disease) from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.
