Dr. Raffi Krikorian, MD, FACC, RVT, RPVI
Leading Vein Specialist

Dr. Raffi Krikorian has turned vein care into an art form. He is always creating better solutions for his patients, willing to push beyond the limits of traditional treatments. He listens to every patient, genuinely wanting to solve their issues. He believes health and beauty are intertwined, and has developed exceptional expertise at restoring vein health while leaving beautiful results. 

Varicose & Spider Veins

These are the most common vein issues we treat. For some patients, they’re merely cosmetic issues, but for others, there may be a deeper medical concern. We evaluate the causes to ensure any treatment solves the whole problem.

Artery Treatments

We’re able to use angioplasty to place arterial stents in virtually any area of the body with a narrowed or blocked artery that is causing symptoms. This is a very effective way of re-opening a narrowed or blocked artery and keeping it open for healthy blood flow.

Lymphedema Treatments

Lymphedema causes swelling in one or both arms or legs. It often happens when lymph nodes have been damaged or removed after cancer treatment. We offer surgical and non-surgical treatment options.

Get Treated Sooner

Because we’re highly specialized, with seven treatment locations in the St. Louis area, we’re able to schedule your exam and treatment much sooner than other facilities. Call us at 314-849-0923 or complete this contact form to get started.

Limb Preservation

If you’ve been told you will need an amputation, please see us first. Nearly half of all patients who undergo an amputation did not have an arteriogram to determine if preserving their arm or leg is possible. 

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

DVT is a life-threatening condition that is caused by blood clots deep within the body. We have special expertise in diagnosing and treating DVT and can offer state-of-the-art treatment options, even when the condition has already caused damage.


We’re able to help many patients avoid open heart surgery with advanced treatments that open up clogged blood vessels and restore normal blood flow.

After my stress test was normal, Dr. Krikorian explained that the test was around 70% accurate and that I should pay close attention to my body for any warning signs. A few weeks later I was exercising when my energy was zapped in less than 10 minutes and I had a pain under the sternum. I called Dr. Krikorian and he scheduled a cardiac catheterization the next day. He said I showed no sign of a heart attack but he found a 99% blockage in the circumflex artery, which he opened with a stent. I am grateful that he explained possible warning signs and then responded quickly with the catheterization and stent.

Dr. Krikorian performed a laser ablation to treat the vein disease in my right leg. I didn’t even realize how much my left leg hurt from varicose veins until he fixed my right leg! I thought the treatment would be painful, so I was so pleasantly surprised to find that it wasn’t.

My daughter could not believe how good my legs looked! She is going to see Dr. Krikorian too. I was completely satisfied with my treatment and am no longer in pain. The result is fantastic and I highly recommend going to see Dr. Krikorian if you are experiencing any leg pain.

I had suffered with varicose veins for years. I recently went to see Dr. Krikorian at Virtue Vein & Lymphatic Center where he told me everything I needed to know about vein disease and the treatment options. He performed a laser ablation on my diseased vein, and I was able to resume my normal activity the day after my procedure!

Dr. Krikorian is a busy man, but he will take the time necessary to really listen to you and figure out what the problem is. Most doctors these days seem to be talking to the computer, and not the person. Well, here it is the other way around.
