Kelly O’Donnell, M.D., medical director at O’Donnell Vein & Medical Spa, Kent Island, has opened a second office in Easton at 5 Martin Court, Easton. The new Easton office will focus on vein treatment for varicose and spider veins. Patients can schedule appointments by calling (410) 643-1999.
Venous disorders, sometimes-called unsightly veins, are among the most common chronic conditions in North America. In fact according to the American College of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine, more than 80 million Americans suffer from some form of venous disorder, the most common of which are varicose and spider veins. The good news is over the past decade new more effective, less invasive treatments have been developed. Venous disease is much more common than heart disease, and arterial disease in the legs, but is still relatively under-recognized and under treated. Once considered complex and painful, vein treatment, can now be done with relative ease. Today’s vein treatment is minimally invasive and virtually pain free. Many patients receive treatment and can resume normal activity or work the same day.
“Over the past four years I found an increasing need for vein treatment here on the Shore,” says Kelly O’Donnell, M.D. “Our Easton office is a convenient location for patients on the Mid- and Lower Shore who suffer from vein disorders. We are pleased to be able to deliver our services to a wider geographic area,” she adds.
O’Donnell Vein & Medical Spa, Kent Island, opened in January 2010, and offers state-of-the art comprehensive treatment for varicose veins, spider veins, venous disorders and cosmetic vein care. Vein treatment procedures are performed by board certified vein specialist, Dr. Kelly O’Donnell.
Dr. O’Donnell earned her undergraduate degree in microbiology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and pursued graduate studies in molecular genetics at University of California, Berkeley, before returning to Maryland to attain her medical degree. Dr. O’Donnell graduated from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in 1990, completed her internship in general surgery at the University Hospitals of Cleveland. Her residency training was in the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Her career for the next decade was in cardiovascular and critical care anesthesia at Prince George’s Hospital Center and Washington Hospital Center. In 2008, Dr. O’Donnell shifted her focus to a new specialty in the diagnosis and treatment of venous disease. In 2009, she received her Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT) certification followed by her Registered Physician of Vascular Interpretation (RPVI) certification and then completed her board certification in venous medicine from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Less than 1% of physicians in the U.S. practicing phlebology have earned this distinction. She is recognized for her extensive experience and full-timework in this area.
