Vein specialist Dr. Lindy McHutchison is the Medical Director of Carolina Vein Center in Durham, North Carolina. Dr. McHutchison and the staff at Carolina Vein Center (CVC) take an old fashioned approach to Phlebology, the medical and scientific field related to varicose veins and vein disease. They pride themselves on truly taking the time to develop quality relationships with each and every one of their patients, who rely on CVC for comprehensive vein disease treatments. In an age when many other health care providers too often treat patients as just another number, the CVC staff pride themselves on taking the time to clearly explain and thoroughly educate patients on their diagnosis and treatment options. As part of this old fashioned approach, the CVC staff make themselves directly open to patients on a continual basis, including holidays, weekends, and nights.

Dr. McHutchison and the staff at CVC are dedicated to the comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins. Problems with varicose veins in the legs can truly affect one’s quality of life. Fortunately, the field of Phlebology is advancing at a faster pace than ever. Treatment options are becoming less invasive and surgery is required less and less often. Yet at the same time, the effectiveness of varicose veins treatment continues to increase. Moreover, the need for Phlebology treatment by qualified experts like the staff at the Carolina Vein Center is also increasing as venous disease affects approximately 80 million Americans, or roughly 20 percent of the adult population. Such individuals who are afflicted with venous disease require expert help for both cosmetic and medical reasons alike.

Dr. Lindy McHutchison’s interest in Phlebology was sparked after she herself had to go through treatment for her own veins. In order to obtain the expertise required to serve patients at the highest possible level, Dr. McHutchison then began training with well renowned physicians at Duke University. She continued her extended clinical training with the notable Dr. John Mauriello, who is a past president of the American College of Phlebology (ACP). Dr. McHutchison is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and has passed the Phlebology Board Exam to become a diplomat of the American Board of Phlebology. In fact, Dr. McHutchison has become so experienced and respected as a vein expert that she herself has trained several physicians within the Phlebology field. She is a very active member of the American College of Phlebology. She also donates her time to medical service missions to Honduras, where she has treated vein patients.

Dr. McHutchison earned her Medical Degree from the Louisiana State University Medical Center in Shreveport, Louisiana. She then completed her Ob/Gyn residency at the University of Southern California Los Angeles County Hospital in Los Angeles, California. Prior to discovering her interest in Phlebology, Dr. McHutchison practiced Ob/Gyn in San Diego, California for 12 years as a physician at Kaiser Permanente. In her spare time she enjoys swimming, ballroom dancing, and playing tennis.
