So when Dr. Louis Prevosti, of Sandy Springs, shifted his career in medicine a year ago to become medical director for Sandy Springs-based VeinInnovations, he saw an opportunity to share his talents.
After spending 20 years as a heart surgeon at Piedmont Hospital in Buckhead and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Sandy Springs, Prevosti transitioned into a different role with the cardiovascular system.
“When I got into the vein aspect of medicine, one of the first things I wanted to do was utilize this type of medicine for one of the clinics in Atlanta that treats the population that doesn’t have access to healthcare otherwise,†the Sandy Springs resident said. “Unlike heart surgery, which doesn’t translate into office work for charity, this type of medicine does translate well into an office-based approach.â€
Since April, Prevosti has been holding monthly workshops for patients with vein problems and diseases at the northwest Atlanta-based Good Samaritan Health Center, which provides health care for fractions of the market cost through pro-bono work.
“What we do is counsel patients on problems and prescribe them medical-grade stockings or ultrasounds if needed and help them set up a treatment plan,†said Prevosti.
Vein disorders like venous reflux disease, which Prevosti said he sees most often, can lead to debilitating symptoms if left untreated. Because most of the patients have not had long-term affordable access to health care, he sees highly advanced cases of this disorder.
“Venous reflux disease is the most under-treated vascular disorder in the U.S.,†he said. “It is twice as common as heart disease and in its most extreme cases causes severe aching, swelling and skin ulcers.â€
...
As for Prevosti, a heart surgeon for 20 years, he said volunteering has enhanced his experience as a doctor.
“Practicing medicine is already a very rewarding profession, but this is even more of a chance to do something beyond that to help out the underprivileged or disadvantaged in Atlanta,†he said. “It’s a feel-good thing and I hope to do more.â€

Louis G. Prevosti, MD, FACS After 19 years of practice in the Atlanta area, Dr. Louis Prevosti, a well-known cardiovascular surgeon, will join the medical staff of VeinInnovations.
Previously, Dr. Prevosti served as Piedmont Hospital’s cardiothoracic surgery section chief and was the medical director of the cardiovascular surgical intensive care unit and telemetry unit. He was also an active staff member of St. Joseph’s Hospital’s cardiovascular and thoracic surgery section and served on several committees.
“We’re obviously thrilled to have Dr. Prevosti on board,†VeinInnovations President and CEO David Martin said. “His extensive experience and board certifications combined with his full-time commitment to venous disease will help further distinguish VeinInnovations as one of the premier vein treatment centers in the country.â€
