Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa’s Beginnings
In September 2002, Dr. Manjoney opened the Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, and in 2004, she left her hospital practice to devote all her medical efforts to treatment of varicose vein disease and performance of minimally-invasive aesthetic procedures. Dr. Manjoney has become a recognized leader in office-based treatment of varicose veins and has performed over 2,500 Endovenous Laser Ablations of Saphenous Veins and over 8,000 ambulatory phlebectomy and sclerotherapy procedures. She was one of the first female surgeons to bring the “medispa” concept to the area, and although it was difficult to leave a high-powered career as a heart surgeon, Dr. Manjoney saw a need for the services she now offers. Her vision was to offer premium care in a state-of-the-art facility that had a comfortable, calming environment.
Dr. Manjoney’s model of excellence is continually implemented through offering the best training and education for her staff. Her high standards are evidenced by her expert staff and the quality of care she offers her patients.
