– Joseph Magnant, MD, FACS, RPVI –


Dr. Joseph Magnant and Dr. Patrick Nero are the premier Vein Specialists in Southwest Florida. Drs. Magnant and Nero are board certified surgeons, 100% dedicated to providing their patients the most cutting edge technology for the diagnosis and treatment of their venous disease. Dr. Magnant founded Vein Specialists in 2006 in Fort Myers and subsequently expanded to Bonita Springs/Naples in 2014. Dr. Nero joined the practice in 2016 and offers the full complement of services and same high quality care in the Naples/Bonita Springs office location. Both of our offices feature ultrasound labs accredited by the IAC and staffed with Registered Vascular Technologists that allow us along with our highly skilled Nurse Practitioners to formulate the best treatment plan for each individual patient.

At Vein Specialists we perform our procedures in an outpatient spa like setting under local anesthesia.  This approach allows patients to avoid the risks of general or regional anesthesia and other hospital-related inconveniences and ensures efficient treatment and a quick nearly painless recovery.

We offer endovenous ablation or closure with both laser and radiofrequency catheters as well as the newest technique utilizing medical adhesive called Venaseal.  Drs. Magnant and Nero also perform injection sclerotherapy and the removal of varicose veins via very small incisions called microphlebectomy when appropriate.  In 2017 we added an outpatient angiographic imaging suite to provide patients intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and venous stents for pelvic congestion and iliac vein compression syndrome. Vein Specialists has served as a training center for physicians around the country interested in learning venous ablation techniques.
