Elizabeth Talley Clark, MD, RVT, FACS, has been a practicing vascular surgeon for twenty years in the Chicagoland area. She received her medical degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1986 after completing undergraduate studies at Wake Forest University and the University of North Carolina. She completed her general surgery residency, NIH Surgical Scholars Research training grant and fellowship in Vascular Surgery at the University of Chicago Hospitals and Clinics. She is board certified in vascular surgery and general surgery as well as credentialed as a registered vascular technologist.
Prior to joining Dr. Woloson in practice with Northwest Vascular and Vein Specialists, she was the Chief of Vascular Surgery and Director of the Vascular Laboratory at both Saint Joseph Hospital and Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago. She has held the positions of Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Chicago, and Adjunct Associate Professor of Surgery at Northwestern McGaw Medical Center in Chicago from 2006-2011. She pursued additional training in Advanced Phlebology in 2011-2012 and is currently a member of the Society of Vascular Surgery, the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society, the Peripheral Vascular Surgical Society, the American College of Surgeons, and the American College of Phlebology. Her training in phlebology has enhanced her comprehensive vein care practice with the inclusion of minimally invasive office-based procedures to treat varicose venous disease and chronic venous insufficiency. Other clinical interests include the treatment of lymphedema and wound care. Her refined use of minimally invasive treatment options allows Dr. Clark to meet the needs of individual patients by treating a wide spectrum of venous pathology from small superficial spider veins to extensive superficial venous insufficiency , all in an outpatient, office-based setting.
Her treatment philosophy may be summarized as “comprehensive successful treatment of vein disease involves coordinated patient care, beginning with initial consultation and patient education, and is achieved with the use of a broad spectrum of appropriate minimally invasive techniques to achieve optimal results.”
