Business Profile: Dr. Michael L. Cahn
Dr. Cahn and his skilled and caring team is committed to providing the finest quality care in their state-of-the-art facilities.
More than 40 million people in the United States suffer from varicose veins, according to Dr. Michael L. Cahn, general surgeon and vein specialist in Brunswick County.
Varicose veins are twisted, swollen, enlarged blood vessels that are raised above the surface of the skin. They are found mostly in the legs, especially in the thighs and/or calves. Varicose veins are a component of a condition called chronic venous insufficiency.. Not only do people find them embarrassing and unsightly, but they can actually cause pain, ulcerations and other symptoms as they progressively enlarge.
“In my practice, most of my patients aren’t coming to see me because of the way they look,” Dr. Cahn says. “They literally have quality of life challenges because of their veins. I’m not selling vein treatment; I’m providing a solution to vein diseases.”
After having worked with other general surgeons and vein doctors in both Whiteville and Wilmington, Dr. Cahn has been doing procedures at Dosher since 2015 and seeing patients in Southport since January 2018. He opened his own practice in 2020.
His prior experience helped him create the vision that he wanted for his own patients.
Dr. Cahn accepts insurance, but his practice has a concierge feel to it. It’s not a high-volume clinic, which allows him to offer a unique patient experience with personalized care. It means he’s more accessible, and patients don’t feel rushed.
“At the end of the day, my goal is to treat patients appropriately so they feel better,” Dr. Cahn says. “I want to create an environment where patients feel cared for. We don’t want them to feel like they’re on a conveyer belt. We ask about their families. We want to know what’s going on in their lives. It gives our patients comfort; they feel like they’re being taken care of by friends.”
Double Board Certified in general surgery and phlebology, Dr. Cahn has successfully treated thousands of patients with varicose and spider veins in his 20 years of experience.
He offers a revolutionary treatment that eliminates uncomfortable and embarrassing varicose and spider veins without scarring or downtime. As a general surgeon, Doctor Cahn also specializes in outpatient, same-day surgeries for patients in southeastern North Carolina and surrounding areas. His skilled and caring team is also committed to providing the finest quality care in their state-of-the-art facilities.
Throughout his experience, one thing Dr. Cahn has learned is that no one really talks about varicose veins.
“It’s one of those things where it’s hidden under your pants, and people will stop wearing shorts and bathing suits because they’re embarrassed. And they don’t realize that it’s a medical problem just as much as it is cosmetic,” he says. “If you take care of one, you can take care of both.”
If a person is on the fence about having vein surgery, Dr. Cahn recommends going to his website to see some of the testimonials from his real patients who have had a great experience. “If I take a hundred patients who have had the surgery, most are happy they did it and wish they had done it sooner,” Dr. Cahn says.
