Who We Are
Dr. Owens and his staff have been serving the Madison community with out-patient surgical services since 1995.
Dr. Owens has been a vein care specialist since 1994. He is a member of the American College of Phlebology, the largest professional organization of vein care physicians. He takes pride in thoughtful, well chosen, compassionate and gentle care. He was the first physician in Wisconsin or Minnesota to perform modern endovenous ablation treatment of saphenous vein varicosities, in early 2000, recognizing the opportunity to spare his patients from painful and unreliable vein stripping surgery. He has continued to be on the forefront of vein care techniques and procedures.
Vein Care Plus (formerly Minor Procedures) offers the full spectrum of vein care, from the tiniest cosmetic spider vein, to severe advanced disease. We strive to provide the highest quality and the most affordable care.
Our patients enjoy the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the office, and comment frequently on the helpful and informative efforts of the staff.
We also provide other office surgical procedures such as: hemorrhoid treatments, vasectomy, skin lesion removal, facial rejuvenation and prolotherapy.
