TeleMedicine Provider


Dr. Thomas Wright is the medical director of Laser, Lipo and Vein Center. He is one of the first two hundred plus surgeons in the nation to become diplomats by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Dr. Wright brings a multidisciplinary comprehensive approach to treating causes of edema from treating venous insufficiency with saphenous ablations to managing lymphedema and lipedema. His comprehensive approach is to first evaluate the venous and lymphatic system with a physical exam and Venous Doppler Ultrasound, which provides invaluable information on the presence of extremity edema and its cause.   He has authored and presented multiple scientific papers on new surgical techniques for the treatment of venous insufficiency and fat disorders and has received several awards and honors for his original research in the treatment of venous insufficiency.

The studies include one with Washington University to better understand metabolic effects of lipedema. Research with the University of Arizona to better understand the tissue pathology of lipedema. He is also involved in a research project to show the improvements in the quality of life with lymph sparing liposuction on patients with lipedema. Dr Wright has published studies on the safety of tumescent anesthesia, which is used during liposuction and venous ablation.  Dr. Wright has developed his own lymphatic sparing surgical technique using micro cannulas to limit any unnecessary injury to the lymphatics during tumescent liposuction.
