He remains a clinical faculty member in the Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery in the Texas Medical Center. He is an expert in percutaneous techniques using ultrasonic guidance which has revolutionized the treatment of venous disease.

With these techniques, he has improved the cosmetic results with limited down time and inconvenience for the patient. He has also been able to move the treatments from the operating room to the in-office surgery room where a local anesthesia can be used instead of general anesthesia.
