Venous Diseases and Their Role in Skin Changes and Ulceration

- EST

Medical Vein Clinic was founded by Dr. John S. Hogg, a diagnostic and interventional radiologist with years of experience in minimally invasive procedures. Dr. Hogg’s education began at Baylor University, where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor in Business Administration in accounting and finance and went to work as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). While working as a CPA, Dr. Hogg came to the realization that he was being called into the medical field, which would allow him to provide a greater service by directly helping people. So he completed his undergraduate premedical curriculum at Southern Methodist University, accepted a spot at Baylor College of Medicine, and graduated four years later with a Doctorate in Medicine. Dr. Hogg’s residency was completed at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, in diagnostic radiology. 

Dr. Hogg strives to provide the best care possible for his patients by explaining and making his patients feel as comfortable as possible in situations that may be stressful for them. He is certified by the American Board of Radiology and is a diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Dr. Hogg is also a Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (RPVI), Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT), Registered Vascular Sonographer (RVS), and a Registered Phlebology Sonographer (RPhS).

Venous leg ulcers (VLUs) account for 70% to 80% of lower extremity wounds. Pathophysiological factors include reflux and/or obstruction. When VLUs do not heal after stand therapy, including compression, patients require a minimally invasive surgical procedure to repair faulty valves and remove blockages.
