David MartinIt’s Monday morning, and you’ll find David Martin at one of four VeinInnovations clinics across metro Atlanta, prepping for another busy day helping patients living with venous disease improve their health.
For the past 15 years, David Martin has been at the helm of VeinInnovations. During that time, thousands of patients have benefited from the latest, most up-to-date technology and his commitment to improving the experience for everyone who’s walked through VeinInnovations’ his doors.

While facing the challenge of treating critically ill patients at the Neurosurgical ICU at Emory, David Martin found his calling in the pursuit of cardiovascular medicine. In 2002, he opened the first VeinInnovations office.

“The more I studied, the more fascinated by the importance of cardiovascular medicine I became.”

Martin leads an expertly trained, specialized staff that has performed more than 12,000 ablation cases, using both radio frequency and laser energy. In addition to ablations, VeinInnovations has performed thousands of ambulatory phlebectomies and episodes of sclerotherapy, highlighting a scope of experience unrivaled by the competition. At VeinInnovations, the team’s expertise and experience stem partly from the fact they specialize, focusing only on vein health.

Leader in Vein Health

Martin’s thorough understanding of cardiovascular medicine led VeinInnovations to be first in Atlanta to end the use of compression stockings following sclerotherapy. They were also the first to offer all thermal ablation techniques under one roof and to use foamed polidocanol for both surface and deep injection.
It didn’t take long for those innovations to find their way into other practices who specialize in vein treatment across the state. In fact, Martin and his venous disease specialists are often so far ahead of the curve that other practices pay close attention to what they’re doing to stay relevant.
In addition to introducing the latest best practices to metro Atlanta patients, Martin believes that patient care is the most important part of clinical advancements.

“We empower all our staff to do whatever they can to make the VeinInnovations experience a pleasant and satisfying one for each patient” he says. “We are less about the business of medicine than serving our patients with the highest level of care.”
Martin says his greatest reward is the almost immediate relief most of his patients feel after receiving treatment for their vein disease. “The fact that these treatments are so easy on the patient (and getting easier all the time), compared to the old surgical procedures, makes it that much more enjoyable.”

First-Hand Experience

Martin’s latest vein health innovation is an injectable treatment that avoids the use of heat and the possible complications of tumescent anesthesia (the injection of anesthetic fluid into the leg). Called BASIS, it promises even greater effectiveness and less discomfort than the current treatments available, setting a new standard in vein health treatment. Having experienced the procedure first-hand, Martin is extremely excited to introduce this brand-new procedure to VeinInnovation patients.

What’s Next?

Always striving to develop new techniques in treatment which are safer, more comfortable and more efficient for his patients isn’t just something Martin talks about, it’s what pulls him out of bed each day. Every morning, he leaves his Druid Hills home in the pursuit of a passion he’s been chasing for as long as he can remember: A calling to help heal vein health and improve his patients’ overall quality of life.
