Joseph Coatti, MD, has been announced as the medical director of the new Vein Center at Vascular Institute of Chattanooga (VIC). As medical director, Dr. Coatti will use the newest, latest technologies to deliver minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment for varicose veins and venous issues.

More than 25 million Americans are affected by venous disease of the lower extremities. Venous reflux disease, which is one of the most common contributors to vascular disease, can cause varicose veins. It is a medical condition in which the vein valves no longer keep blood flowing from the legs to the heart. Left untreated, it can lead to significant circulatory problems and large bulging veins.

Dr. Coatti provides a comprehensive cardiovascular evaluation to ensure that minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment is appropriate. If so, vein issues can be treated in an in-office procedure, utilizing laser energy or adhesives to cauterize and close problem veins.

Typically, no stitches are needed after the procedure with little to no down time for the patient; a small opening in the skin is covered with a simple bandage and the leg is covered with a compression wrap.” Dr. Coatti said. “The Vein Center provides specialized expertise to solve these common vein issues that can impact a patients routine daily activities.”

Dr. Coatti is trained in all aspects of vascular/endovascular surgery in both the inpatient and outpatient setting, and has additional experience in orthopedic spine exposure procedure. Prior to joining VIC in 2018, he practiced for at Shoreline Surgical Associates in Middletown, Ct., for 29 years. He is a 1982 graduate of St. George’s University School of Medicine. His surgical residency was at the Hospital of St. Raphael, affiliated with Yale School of Medicine in Hartford, Ct. He followed with a fellowship at Texas Heart Institute in Houston.

Appointments and new patients are now being accepted for the Vein Center at both the Chattanooga, 2358 Lifestyle Way, Ste., 100, and Cleveland, 4625 N. Lee Highway, locations by calling 423-602-2750.
