Tanner has long offered vein and vascular services through two of its Tanner Medical Group practices, but a dedicated Tanner Vein Center office is officially open and accepting appointments.
Tanner Vein Center patients will be diagnosed and treated by board-certified vascular surgeon Thomas “Rett” Reeve IV, MD.
Dr. Reeve earned his medical degree at the Mercer University School of Medicine in Macon before finishing his surgical residency at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston Salem, N.C. He also holds a master’s in clinical population and translational science from Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and he completed a fellowship in vascular surgery at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta.
Dr. Reeve’s ties to Carrollton and to Tanner are deep. His father, Thomas Reeve III, has been a surgeon at Tanner for decades. And his grandfather, Tom Reeve Jr., MD, was Tanner’s first board-certified surgeon.
At Tanner Vein Center, Dr. Reeve will see patients of any age whose legs: ache, burn, cramp or throb; are restless, feel heavy or tired; have visible varicose or spider veins; have sores, ulcers or clots; itch (with or without a rash); or swell when not propped up.
Once diagnosed, minimally invasive in-office treatment options will include: endovenous ablation, micro phlebectomy; sclerotherapy, VenaSeal, Varithena and more. Patients receiving these treatments generally experience little to no pain and go home the same day — typically with no downtime.
