Dr. Jonathan Calure was one of the first surgeons in the Baltimore- Washington- Annapolis region to perform VNUS Closure. He first started performing Vein Care while he was actively practicing Cardiac Surgery at the Washington Adventist Hospital. He founded Maryland Vein Professionals in 2006 with the mission of being Maryland's Premier Vein Care Specialty practice. In the three years following, the practice has grown to 6 locations with over 45 staff, including physicians, nurse practitioners, sclerotherapists, sonographers, technical assistants and administrative staff. Maryland Vein Professionals is the largest outpatient specialty vein practice by volume in the State of Maryland, and averages over 300 new patients per month. Unlike others in the region who offer vein care only as a sidelight to another specialty, MVP is dedicated exclusively to the latest techniques of minimally invasive vein care. Using VNUS Closure exclusively, MVP currently performs more RF ablations than any practice in the United States, more than 250 per month. MVP has expanded to five locations in Maryland: Columbia, Annapolis, Chevy Chase, Gambrills, and Salisbury. Our suites were designed to maximize patient comfort and feature amenities like flat screen TVs. Our patients sit back, relax and enjoy their favorite movie during treatment. Maryland Vein Professionals has trained surgeons from across the United States and internationally in advanced vein care techniques. Maryland Vein Professionals is a National Center of Excellence for the latest techniques of minimally invasive vein care.
