After training and practicing cardiothoracic surgery for more than 20 years, Dr Albert left his position as chief of cardiothoracic surgery at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs to take on a new challenge. He recognized that technical advances in the treatment of venous disease offered a new opportunity. He developed a state-of-the-art facility where all diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of medical and cosmetic venous disease could be provided. Thus the Albert Vein Institute (AVI) was founded in 2006.
Since then, AVI has become a nationally recognized center for vein treatment. More than 3,000 patients have been treated. AVI is devoted exclusively to the care of venous issues.
Dr. Albert is the only physician in Colorado who is board certified in both thoracic surgery and the growing specialty of phlebology and exclusively devoted to the latter.
