Advanced Vein Center Announces Arrival of Dr. Andre Couture to Portland Practice
July 14, 2022—The Advanced Vein Center—the region’s most experienced, office-based venous disease facility—announces expansion of physician services with the arrival of Andre Couture, DO, to its Portland office. Dr. Couture is a distinguished Maine physician focused on enhancing patient care and outcomes in emergency medicine and the specialty fields of venous disease and chronic wound management.
“Venous insufficiency or venous disease is an area of medicine widely misunderstood by the public and underserved in the medical community—and at the Advanced Vein Center, we are working to change both of those,” said Dr. Couture. “Vein disease impacts both men and women of nearly all ages, but few patients know about the treatments available to eliminate the discomfort, health risks and even cosmetic challenges veins can cause, and few doctors in the region specialize in advanced vein care. We’re working to support the medical community by providing ancillary services for their patients and educate the public that bulging or dark visible veins are not an inevitable part of aging—and they may even be signal that help is needed.”
The Advanced Vein Center, located in a state-of-the-art facility just across from the Portland Jetport, specializes in the comprehensive treatment of venous disease, treating leg pain, varicose veins, spider veins and leg ulcers among other conditions. The wide-ranging treatments offered at the center are designed to offer better results than traditional surgical methods, without the use of general anesthesia, significant discomfort, or an extended recovery period. The Advanced Vein Center’s minimally invasive procedures include sclerotherapy, endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, ultrasound, cryotherapy, and compression therapy.
Dr. Couture is highly trained in vein access and comes to the Advanced Vein Center applying his experience and expertise to the center’s leading services. He completed his medical school and training in his home state of Maine and from the earliest days of his career has been sought after for his insights and skills in medicine, to this day serving as a preceptor for emergency medical education at UNE’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Tufts University School of Medicine.
“Dr. Couture is the next generation of advanced vein care, leading this specialty field of medicine forward with advanced techniques, rich medical experience and the same patient-centered approach our center has become known for over the past 10+ years, we’re thrilled to have him onboard,” said management at the Advanced Vein Center.
