About Dr. Grisoli

Education and Training

Dr. Richard J. Grisoli is board certified in the following areas:

  • Anesthesiology
  • Critical Care Medicine 

He is also a certified vein specialist by the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine.

In 2008, Dr. Grisoli received an additional certification awarded by the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine. This certification is awarded to physicians who can demonstrate by rigorous testing that they have the necessary knowledge and skills to diagnose and treat most venous disease. 

Dr. Richard J. Grisoli received his medical degree in 1981 from the Louisiana State University Medical School in New Orleans. Dr. Grisoli completed his medical/surgical internship at the Ochsner Foundation Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana. He then completed his residency in Anesthesiology at the Ochsner Foundation Hospital. After completing his training, he spent time as an attending anesthesiologist teaching physicians in their anesthesiology residency in New Orleans at the Ochsner Foundation Hospital.

Uniquely Qualified

Dr. Grisoli is an anesthesiologist and a phlebologist. This fusion of specialties enables him to painlessly insert a catheter into a vein and guide the catheter into position for treating abnormal veins. These procedures are easier for the patient and involve less risk because there are no large incisions, fewer complications, shorter recovery times, and less pain. 

He became interested in venous disease in 1996 and established a separate successful vein clinic at that time. He initially became interested in sclerotherapy of spider veins as anesthesiologists are skillful with needle placement in small veins and are often asked to start intravenous lines in the neonatal care unit on premature infants. His vein practice rapidly became successful drawing patients from several communities.

Dr. Grisoli’s interests include treatment of all types of veins from tiny cosmetic spiders to large varicose veins. He will include duplex ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of many venous disorders. He has been performing endovenous laser ablation techniques of the Saphenous Venous System with great success since 2004. 

In 2007, Dr. Grisoli received an additional certification awarded by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (A.R.D.M.S.). This certification is entitled Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation (R.P.V.I.) and is awarded to physicians who can demonstrate by rigorous testing that they have the necessary knowledge and skills to perform and interpret ultrasonography and doppler testing for vascular conditions.
