“Dr. Cutchen of Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute treated my painful, bulging varicose veins with his in-office vein procedures, including endovenous laser ablation to close up the diseased vein. The results were much better than I expected, and I am thrilled with both the cosmetic results, with how my legs look, and the medical results, with how my legs now feel. The procedure was a bit more in-depth than I initially anticipated but was well worth the results. Dr. Cutchen is the best vein doctor!.”
Bess, the nurse sclerotherapist at Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, is absolutely the best! She made me feel comfortable and confident throughout my spider vein injection treatment. She was great at tending to my needs and distracting \me during the treatment. I highly recommend seeing her for your spider vein treatment. Also, the office was extremely clean and welcoming. A+ for an overall experience!
Dr. Rob Cutchen of Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute treated the varicose veins in my right leg with laser treatment, injections and micro-phlebectomy (tiny incisions to remove bulging veins). I had always assumed that vein treatment would require a pain medication and a long recovery period with little mobility, but I’m happy to say that I was wrong! After a day or two being a little uncomfortable, I was able to resume my daily walks, and my legs now look and feel great!
Not only does Dr. Rob Cutchen of Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute sing a mean rendition of the Bear’s “Super Bowl Shuffle” song, but he is also a GREAT vein doctor! Dr. Cutchen treated both of my legs with laser ablations and ambulatory phlebectomy (tiny incisions to remove the little bulging veins). I am so happy – I no longer have leg pains and cramps, and my legs look pretty good again, too! I had thought vein treatment would involve a lot of pain, but I was wrong – I only needed a bit of ibuprofen. I was not a big fan of wearing the stockings, but the actual laser treatment was a piece of cake.
I never realized how badly my legs actually felt. I didn’t realize how severe my vein symptoms were until after having vein treatment. Post DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and PE (pulmonary embolism), Dr. Cutchen of Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute treated my incompetent saphenous veins on both legs with endovenous laser ablation. I thought my “ropey” veins were just cosmetic in nature and had no idea how much better I was going to feel. I was happily surprised with the increase in energy and leg function that I immediately felt. I had always believed that my symptoms were minimal and something that I could just live with, and I never really realized just how badly my legs/veins felt before seeing Dr. Cutchen. My vein procedures were performed in his office and involved some slight post-treatment discomfort. I can now walk, stand, and rise from a chair free of pain!. Dr. Cutchen and his entire staff are a rarity in the medical field. I was treated as an individual, never rushed, and always listened to. Their caring attitude, excellent skilled treatment and wonderful results were totally worth it!
I never realized how good my legs could look and feel after vein treatment. Dr. Cutchen of Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute treated the varicose veins in my legs and spider veins on my feet. After having endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebotomy and endovenous chemical ablation, I am very pleased with the results, as they are better than I ever could have expected. Before seeing Dr. Cutchen, I had always believed that there weren't treatment options for varicose veins, and that they were just something that you had to deal with. I never realized how good my legs could look and feel after vein treatment. I was most surprised by how simple the procedures were, and that they were performed "in-office". I also didn't have any down-time or pain, and was up and walking and doing my normal activities immediately after treatment.
I cannot express how pleased I am with Dr. Cutchen and his staff. Their professionalism and desire to ensure each patient has a pleasant experience is exemplary. I am thrilled with the results of my varicose vein treatment and am only sorry that I didn't have the procedure sooner. I feel like a new person!
Happy is not a strong enough word!!!
Dr. Cutchen treated my varicose veins with an endovenous laser ablation and endovenous chemical ablation in his Albuquerque vein center. My legs look and feel like they once did – 20 years ago! I had always heard horror stories about the pain involved with varicose vein treatment, and I thought insurance did not cover the treatment. Both were untrue. I was surprised with how quickly I was able to return to work (the very next day) and get on with my life. I was, and still am, blown away with how much better I feel both inside and out!
Thank you, Dr. Cutchen.
Excellent doctor and staff. The care that doctor Cutchen and his staff gave me was great from start to finish. I had painful leg pain from varicose veins in my left left leg for 20 years. It has been a year now since surgery and I have no pain and the leg looks good too. Thanks Dr. Cutchen
EXTREMELY HAPPY! My legs bothered me for 15+ years. I wish I had known that there was a cure for the constant pain and swelling. My legs no longer ache or swell after standing all day at work (12 hour shifts). As a distance runner, both of my run times and endurance have improved dramatically!
I had varicose veins in both legs. I was surprised to find out how professionally my procedures were done and that there was not too much pain involved.
I thought I would have pain and was concerned about being put to sleep, however I was awake during the procedure and Dr. Cutchen made sure I was always aware of everything he was doing — this was absolutely great! My legs feel wonderful, I’m extremely happy with the results.
I am extremely happy with my new legs. I no longer have the constant swelling, aches or pressure in my legs — especially when I exercise. I had no idea it could affect someone my age! I was surprised at how quickly the recovery time was and also how painless the procedure was. After a very short recovery time, my legs feel better than they have in years!
I am extremely happy with my treatment. There was instant pain relief and I got my legs back!
I am thrilled to be free of the leg pain after 25 years. I prolonged treatment after listening to ladies talking about painful "leg stripping," and said "No Thanks." However, the huge change in painless procedures encouraged me to improve the appearance of my legs. Plus, to have this all done in within the convenience Dr. Cutchen's office was a big bonus.
I had an infection on my right leg that developed gradually over the past year I had heard of 'vein stripping' surgery and how expensive it was. I was fearful that I was going to have to go through surgery and then worry about the cost of the surgery since the insurance stated that it was not going to cover this cosmetic procedure. After a couple of visits to your office, I found out that surgery was paid by the insurance. I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Cutchen does 'laser surgery' instead of 'vein stripping.' The surgery went well. I am pleased with my results and I am healing well.
I was very happy with my varicose vein treatment. It was probably the best medical procedure I have had done to date with good short- and long-term benefits. The procedure was surprisingly 'bloodless' and eased my fears about possible side effects.
