Narendra K. Garg, M.D., is the founder and medical director of Chicagoland Aesthetics and Veins Without Surgery. His underlying vision for both of these practices was to create a setting where the patient is offered the latest, most proven, minimally invasive technologies on the market in an honest, caring environment. Dr. Garg is a Board Certified varicose vein specialist actively engaged in private practice for over 25 years. After completing his residency in Internal Medicine at an affiliate of Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. Garg developed a special interest in vascular, aesthetic and hair restoration medicine and successfully completed additional training to achieve diplomate status from the American Board of Phlebology. Dr. Garg is one of only a handful of board-certified phlebologists in the state of Illinois. Dr. Garg is on staff at Edwards Hospital in Naperville and Rush-Copley Hospital in Aurora, and has full admitting privileges at both locations.
An Expert in Varicose Veins
A member of the American Medical Association, American College of Phlebology, American Society of Internal Medicine, American College of Physicians, and the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, Dr. Garg strives to remain on the forefront of varicose vein treatment and hair restoration. He frequently appears in local media outlets to educate patients’ on new technologies for treating varicose veins. Dr. Garg and his facility is also involved in teaching and preceptorship of medical students and healthcare providers from Rush University Medical Center and Robert Morris College.
Dr. Garg has developed a special expertise in treating varicose veins by the new, state-of-the-art and FDA-approved procedure called Endovenous Laser, or EVLT. This procedure is rapidly replacing the traditional way of treating veins by a procedure called surgical stripping. The EVLT is a minimally-invasive procedure that is done in an office setting with local anesthetic to remove large varicose veins. This procedure requires no downtime and leaves no scars.
Surgical stripping, on the other hand, is an in-hospital procedure requiring spinal or general anesthesia, with several days of recovery time and leaves numerous little scars on the legs. This old-fashioned treatment is normally provided by surgeons, whereas Dr. Garg, being a physician by training, puts more emphasis on the non-surgical solution to this traditionally surgical problem.
