Dr. Golan at North Shore Vascular 1-847-441-2700
Vascular Surgery Experience
26 years of venous and arterial vascular surgery.
Significant experience indicates that physicians like Dr. Golan have seen the whole evolution of vein treatments - and can handle any patient issue that may arise.
For more than 15 years Dr. Golan has consistently been rated by his peers as one of the top vascular surgeons in Chicago on the Chicago Magazine's list of "Top Docs" for many years - as well as on Castle Connolly's Top Doctors in America, and Top Tier MDs. Named to the prestigious U.S. News Top Doctors List in 2011: one of 302 vascular surgeons, nationally.
Vascular Surgery Board Certification
Board Certified in Vascular Surgery- and Fellow in the American College of Surgeons.
Few "vein centers" or "vein clinics" have any Board Certified Vascular Surgeons doing their procedures. Vascular surgeons are the only type of physicians uniquely trained in treating medical conditions involving veins and arteries. Did you know that any type of doctor can just hang out a shingle and start doing varicose vein procedures without any vascular expertise or certification? It's true.
Hospital Affiliations at top Chicago medical centers demonstrate an ongoing commitment to the full spectrum of vascular surgery: vascular & arterial. Plus, doctors credentialed at top hospitals are subject to stringent credentialing and oversight.
Senior Clinician Educator, Pritzker School of Medicine
Teaching Affiliations at top Chicago medical centers also demonstrate a commitment to be on the cutting edge of vascular surgery -- and to teach the next generation of vascular surgeons.
# of Varicose Vein Laser Treatments performed
Over 2500 varicose vein laser procedures; Dr. Golan was the first physician in the entire Chicago area to perform "EVLT" (endovenous laser treatments) in 2002 and has trained more than 300 other physicians in the procedure.
The number of successful vein procedures performed is one of very most important indicators of physician expertise that impacts patient outcomes -- per physician…not just the number that a "clinic/center" has done.
# of Spider Vein Treatments Supervised or Performed
Over 10,000 spider vein treatments performed.
Spider Veins Treatments (Sclerotherapy) are often done at other facilities by nurses. North Shore Vascular, though, has a skilled, Board Certified Nurse Practitioner working under the supervision of Dr. Golan -- to perform most of these treatments. Plus Dr. Golan is skilled in both tumescent and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy procedures.
Over 85% of Dr. Golan's patients arrive as the result of a physician or patient referral - in other words from medical professionals who already trust Dr. Golan to treat their patients - and from very satisfied customers.

North Shore Vascular ends up treating a significant number of patients who have checked out a local "vein center" or "vein clinic" -- and then knew they needed a 2nd opinion - and a different physician: Dr. Golan
Dr. Golan only uses FDA approved materials and never re-uses catheters.
With little regulation or oversight in the vein care field, physician integrity and reputation play an important role in patient safety.
