Dr Dennison completed his internship at the Department of Family Medicine at Wayne State, where he went on to the Medical College of Ohio to do a residency in anesthesiology. Once his residency was completed he went to the University of Kentucky as a Fellow in Pain Management. Finally Dr Dennison completed his MDA back home at the University of South Florida.


Dr Dennison currently see patients throughout Tampa Bay in the office setting, in ambulatory surgical centers, as an Adjunct Professor for Nova University and is active at 10 local hospitals throughout the area. Dr. Dennison can follow his patients wherever they go.


As a pain physician in the Tampa area it became apparent the lack of venous disease treatment options available. He decided that a vein clinic focusing on underlying medical conditions was exactly what the Bay area needed.

Dr. Jones was born and raised in Detroit, MI. He attended Tennessee State and Meharry Medical College in Nashville, TN for advanced education. He then returned home to Detroit to complete a Physical Medicine and Rehab residency at William Beaumont hospital and an Interventional Pain Management fellowship. During his tenure with advanced vein care, Dr Jones has taken specialized courses and proctorships in learning the most advanced treatments for vein disease.


Dr. Jones is affiliated with Brandon Regional Hospital, Kindred Hospital Central Tampa, St Josephs Hospital and Tampa Community Hospital.

Venous disease is defined as the impairment of blood flow towards your heart. Understanding venous disease means understanding the complex system of veins that make up our legs.


Our legs are comprised of a network of veins that are similar to branches on a tree: they contain large, or major veins and increasingly smaller veins. Oxygenated blood is constantly being pumped from the heart to the rest of our bodies through arteries. It is the job of our veins to carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart.


Healthy veins have valves which open and close to assist the return of blood to the heart. Venous disease (also called vein insufficiency or venous reflux), occurs if these valves become damaged, allowing the backward flow of blood in the legs. Because gravity works on the legs more than on other parts of the body, these vein walls are under tremendous pressure. When blood cannot be properly returned through the vein, it can pool, leading to a feeling of heaviness and fatigue, causing varicose veins and other skin changes.


Approximately half of the U.S. population has venous disease.


Venous disease is a progressive disease that is not curable.


For most people, even debilitating symptoms are completely treatable.


Proper treatment means evaluating your complete venous system.


Stages of Vein Disease


Symptoms of vein disease


Spider Veins

Spider vein is the common term for blue or purple-colored veins that occur under the skin but are close enough to be seen on the surface. Spider veins can cause physical discomfort, but because of their appearance, they can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness, especially during the summer season. Spider veins are an indication of early stage venous disease, and treating them not only can improve appearance but can help stop the progression of venous disease.


Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are visible veins in the leg that bulge, often protruding through the skin. They are the result of venous insufficiency: blood that pools in the vein because of a faulty valve and causes the protrusion. Varicose veins are a symptom of early stage venous disease.



While symptoms of early stage venous disease are not always painful, it is common to experience discomfort as the disease progresses. This can manifest through fatigue or general discomfort that gets worse over the course of a day or after standing for long periods, and can often be relieved by elevating the legs.


Skin Changes

Skin changes can occur during many stages of venous disease. Swelling may occur around the leg, ankles, or around the knees. Brown discoloration that appears as a stain on the skin is a sign of an advanced stage of venous disease. This occurs as a result of blood leaking from the blood vessels and into the skin tissue. This staining can lead to white spots and are a precursor to an ulcer.



Venous stasis ulcers in the leg are often an indication that venous disease has reached an advanced stage. Because venous disease is progressive, venous reflux can often lead to additional valve failure. As a result, the pooling of blood can affect a larger area. When blood pools in the lower leg over a long period of time, the condition is referred to as venous stasis.


OTHER Complications of the Venous System


Superficial Thrombophlebitis

Superficial Venous Thrombophlebitis (SVT) is the term used for blood that becomes turbulent and pools near the surface of the skin, resulting in a clot in a superficial vein. Superficial refers to the veins just below the skin’s surface. Blood clotting and swelling in superficial veins rarely cause serious problems, but they can be extremely painful and lead to weeks of incapacitation while the leg heals. Frequent clots require treatment to fix the underlying venous insufficiency.


Most superficial veins develop dysfunction at junctions with deep veins.  It is crucial to treat a vein at the source of the problem. A thorough “vein mapping” with ultrasound is a critical part of evaluation and treatment of SVT.


Deep Vein Thrombosis

Clots that occur in the deep vein system are called Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). This is a serious, life-threatening condition that requires immediate medical care. A clot in a deep vein can move through the bloodstream resulting in embolism. Many factors contribute to DVT risk including inherited disorders, certain medications or vein injuries. Sitting in a confined space or traveling for long periods can also increase the risk of DVT.


While symptoms of venous disease can increase the chances of experiencing SVT,  DVT is not a symptom of the progression of venous disease. However, irritation of the vein wall, which occurs in SVT, can be a risk factor for DVT. Learn More


If you are having any of the above symptoms, seeing a professional vein specialist for a thorough evaluation will help you determine the severity of your issue and explore options for treatment.


There are several vein treatment options, but they may not all be the right one for your specific condition. This download will help you figure out:




Advanced Vein Care offers a wide array of contemporary vein treatment options to our patients. Dr. Dennison is significantly experienced in the latest vein care modalities for improving outward appearance and treating the root cause of annoying and sometimes debilitating vein issues.


Treatment types include both minimally invasive procedures and conservative therapies, either alone or in combination to suit your unique needs. While you can conveniently practice conservative treatments any time or anywhere as needed, highly effective outpatient procedures are performed right in our Tampa Bay vein treatment center under local anesthesia to ensure your utmost comfort and care.


Modern venous procedures are minimally invasive outpatient surgeries that have all but replaced old-fashioned vein stripping techniques. This means there is little to no downtime for the patient and the added convenience of an office-based procedure.


We offer some of the most advanced vein treatment procedures available today, including:


• Compression Therapy

 • Duplex Ultrasound

 • Endovenous Ablation

 • Endovenous Thermal Ablation

 • Microphlebectomy

 • Phlebectomy

 • Sclerotherapy

 • Venaseal

 • RF ClosureFAST™


Although the tools and techniques used in each procedure are very different, the primary goal of all of them is to close off unhealthy veins so that blood flow can be rerouted through healthier leg veins. After carefully evaluating your condition through comprehensive ultrasound and medical assessments and speaking with you about your goals for treatment, Dr. Dennison will design a care plan tailored to fit your needs.


Overall, patients who choose to undergo these procedures are often pleasantly surprised to discover just how easy and effective they really are for restoring an improved vein appearance and better vein health. After treatment at one of the best vein treatment centers in Tampa, FL, you will wonder why you waited so long to look and feel better.
