James D. Albert, M.D., RPVI, FACPh

James D. Albert, M.D., RPVI, FACPh

With more than two decades of experience, James D. Albert, M.D., RPVI, FACPh, is Colorado’s leading expert in the treatment of venous disease. Board-Certified in both Cardiovascular Surgery and Phlebology, Dr. Albert is uniquely qualified to provide his patients with the most advanced vein care available anywhere.

After receiving his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Dr. James D. Albert, RPVI, completed his General Surgery training and Residency at New York-Presbyterian/Weill-Cornell Medical Center. Eventually relocating to Colorado, Dr. Albert completed a Cardiovascular Surgery fellowship at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus in Denver. He went on to serve as Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at UCHealth-Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs.

After more than 20 years of training and practicing Cardiovascular Surgery, Dr. Albert left his position to take on an exciting new challenge.

He recognized that technical advances in the treatment of vein disease offered a new opportunity: to provide patients with maximum results using today’s most advanced and minimally invasive vein care technology and treatment, all available in one location. Devoted exclusively to vein care, the leading physician provides the patient evaluation, treatment plans, and is actively involved in many of the procedures and care of each patient from start to final outcome.

With this vision in mind, Dr. Albert successfully developed a state-of-the-medical-arts facility that could handle all diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of medical and cosmetic venous disease. Dr. Albert was one of the first physicians in Colorado to develop this comprehensive model for today’s minimally invasive vein care, concentrated in one location. Focusing exclusively on the treatment of venous disease, Albert Vein Institute offers vein care that’s unlike any other in Colorado. It is the Premiere Center of Excellence for Total Vein Care, having been Nationally recognized for its highest standards of care and safety as an “IAC Accredited Vein Center” (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission), the First and Only in Colorado. Dr. Albert has been recognized by his medical peers for his expertise in venous care for the 7th year in a row as a “Top Doc”  in Colorado Springs Style Magazine.

Founded in 2006, the Albert Vein Institute has become Colorado’s “platinum standard” for vein care, receiving national recognition for ongoing excellence. Devoted exclusively to the care of venous issues, Albert Vein Institute has treated more than 7,500 patients. James D. Albert, M.D., RPVI, FACPh is a national expert on venous disease and has published more than 60 articles in major medical journals.

As head of the premiere center for Colorado varicose vein treatment, Dr. Albert wanted to expand Albert Vein Institute’s (AVI) services to better accommodate patients living in Denver and the surrounding metropolitan areas. The same state-of-the-medical-arts services that have helped many thousands of individuals with varicose veins and spider veins in Colorado Springs and Southern Colorado have been equally accessible since 2010 for Denver metro area patients. The Denver medical office of AVI offers the same quality care as the Colorado Springs facility. The same medical support staff accompanies Dr. Albert to each location, assuring consistent, high-level vein treatment and care. Dr. Albert is your practicing physician at each location, brining his exceptional level of medical and surgical expertise to each and every patient.
