The Vein Center at Northborough Crossing

The Vein Center at Northborough Crossing is accredited in Superficial Venous Treatment and Management by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

Our community location at the UMass Memorial Medical Group at Northborough Crossing offers a comprehensive range of treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins in a comfortable clinic environment. Staffed by vascular surgeons, nurse practitioners and vascular ultrasound technicians, our IAC-certified Vein Center and Vascular Lab provide the most current techniques for treatment of superficial venous disease. Treatment options include thermal ablation (ClosureFast™) and adhesive closure (VenaSeal™ ) of varicose veins, perforator closure, and microphlebectomy. We offer liquid, foam and ultra-sound guided sclerotherapy for treatment of smaller veins.  

Accreditation by the IAC means that the vein center has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including a detailed review of selected patient procedures.  IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to superficial venous disorders, which include physicians, nurses and ultrasound technologists.

IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the vein center’s processes and procedures have been carefully evaluated by medical experts in the field of treatment and management of superficial venous disorders. When scheduling a vein center procedure, patients are encouraged to inquire as to the accreditation status of the facility where their treatment and management will be performed and can learn more by visiting
