York Vein Clinic: Who We are and What We Do:

York Vein Clinic is equipped to treat virtually all types of vein problems including varicose veins, spider veins, hand veins, and facial veins. Using EVLA (Endovenous Laser Ablation), foam sclerotherapy, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy , sclerotherapy (vein injections), microphlebectomy, and lasers we treat virtually any vein, including the largest varicose veins. We have several thousand satisfied patients who are living proof that veins can be treated without surgery, and with minimal pain, no scars, and minimal downtime.

You Don't Need Surgery!

Now you can treat varicose veins with no surgery, no scars, no downtime, and minimal discomfort.

If you have been told that you need surgery for your veins, keep reading, because surgery is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. It has been replaced by foam sclerotherapy and endovenous laser.

If you have been undergoing treatments for your veins over and over through the years and they just don't want to go away, keep reading!

The information you are going to find here is solid science, delivered to you in language that is easily understood. If you still have questions when you have finished reading the pages on spider vein treatment and varicose vein treatment , please feel free to email or call for more information.

But the best way to get comprehensive information and advice that is specific to your condition is to come in for a consultation. There is no charge for consultations. You do not need a referral from your family doctor.

(If you just can't wait to find out how we achieve high success rates with varicose vein therapy, here is the short answer. At York Vein Clinic you will be cared for by a doctor who is certified in vein medicine by the American Board of Venous Medicine and the Canadian Society of Phlebology. The first thing we will do is map out your varicose veins using ultrasound with the most important aspect of this being to identify the source of the problem. Then using a systematic approach, we treat your veins starting at the source. We primarily use endovenous laser and foam sclerotherapy, two amazing innovations that began rapidly rising in popularity around the world in about 2002. And we use ultrasound at every visit to give us a clear picture of what we need to treat. The ultrasound also allows us to reach veins that could previously only be treated with surgery.)




York Vein Clinic proudly serves Aurora, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, York Region, Toronto, and the GTA. Although most of our patients are within a thirty-minute drive, we have people coming to us from Parry Sound, North Bay, Sudbury and Timmins to the north; Oshawa, Whitby, and Port Hope (even Ottawa) to the east; and London, Sarnia, and Goderich to the west! Innovative services and dedication to patient education and satisfaction are some of the reasons patients are willing to drive hours to see us.



Your Doctor:

Dr. Philip Kritzinger is an accomplished and respected vein doctor. He has been treating veins since 2002, and has built one of the most successful vein practices in the country. As of 2022, his clinic has performed 16,000 vein procedures, adding almost 1,000 more each year.

After receiving his M.D. from the University of Calgary, Dr. Kritzinger practiced family medicine in rural British Columbia then urban Ontario for 18 years. Looking for a new challenge, he underwent extensive training in vein medicine commencing in 2002.

He holds a diploma from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (2009, the first year it was available) and fellowship with the Canadian Society of Phlebology having completed the curriculum of the International Union of Phlebology (2011, the first year it was available).

Life-long learning is a top priority for Dr. Kritzinger, so he continues to attend two or three vein conferences every year where he networks with other physicians, keeps up with the latest research and treatment standards, and occasionally does presentations.

His belief in the importance of education transfers to his practice where he spends considerable time teaching his patients in order to empower them to make informed decisions about their care. In a typical consultation, Dr. Kritzinger will conduct an ultrasound of your veins. He will show you everything on the screen and explain what you are seeing. Then he will thoroughly discuss the findings and your treatment options and spend as much time as you need to answer your questions.

Dr. Kritzinger thrives on the challenge of making an accurate diagnosis and performing a successful treatment. Even more so, he prizes the appreciation he receives from his thousands of satisfied patients. In short, he loves his job!

Dr. Kritzinger expands on his career here.
