OVERVIEW

TeleMedicine Provider


Dr. Thomas Wright is the medical director of Laser, Lipo and Vein Center. He is one of the first two hundred plus surgeons in the nation to become diplomats by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Dr. Wright brings a multidisciplinary comprehensive approach to treating causes of edema from treating venous insufficiency with saphenous ablations to managing lymphedema and lipedema. His comprehensive approach is to first evaluate the venous and lymphatic system with a physical exam and Venous Doppler Ultrasound, which provides invaluable information on the presence of extremity edema and its cause.   He has authored and presented multiple scientific papers on new surgical techniques for the treatment of venous insufficiency and fat disorders and has received several awards and honors for his original research in the treatment of venous insufficiency. 


Dr. Wright has a specialized skill set and passion for unique types of liposuction.  He was trained in tumescent liposuction technique by its originator, Dr. Jeffrey Klein.  He trained with several European surgeons on a specialized form of lymph sparing liposuction for the treatment of lipedema.  Dr. Wright has performed thousands of tumescent liposuction procedures over the last 15 for both cosmetic problems and to treat the fat storage disorder lipedema with the lymph sparing liposuction.  He is actively involved in multiple research studies on lipedema. The studies include one with Washington University to better understand metabolic effects of lipedema. Research with the University of Arizona to better understand the tissue pathology of lipedema. He is also involved in a research project to show the improvements in the quality of life with lymph sparing liposuction on patients with lipedema. Dr Wright has published studies on the safety of tumescent anesthesia, which is used during liposuction and venous ablation.  Dr. Wright has developed his own lymphatic sparing surgical technique using micro cannulas to limit any unnecessary injury to the lymphatics during tumescent liposuction.  


 Dr Wright has received numerous honors including Election to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society,  appointment as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Scholar.

"Dr. Wright and his staff were amazing to work with. The treatment they provided with was professional and done with the utmost care. I was treated for varicose veins with the Ablation treatment. My recovery went really well and I no longer have discomfort or bulging veins."

"I had ablation in one leg and sclerotherapy in both legs. Every appointment was on-time, thorough and thoughtful. I’m a little sad that my treatment is over as Doctor wright and his staff (Meghan) have been so amazing throughout this whole treatment plan (over 1 year’s time)! My legs look and feel great and I fully recommend Dr. Wright and his team to treat your veinous disease."
  • December 12, 2023
"Dr. Wright is a knowledgeable, compassionate and experienced surgeon. I wholeheartedly recommend him and his staff. Within the last 7 months, I’ve had 3 lipedema surgeries (abdominal/back, inner thighs & hips/buttocks) done. I look and feel like myself again which I never thought possible. I recently booked my last two surgeries because my results are so awesome. Follow instructions from the doctor and you will get results! My only regret is not going to him sooner."

"Dr Wright and Nurse Megan have been tremendous. Allayed fears, walked me through the process and treatment and answered any questions day or night. They are a great team and I'm so happy to have had them treat the veins in my legs. It's made a wonderful difference in my quality of life. Thanks for the pew pew laser treatment guys! Cheers!"

"Dr. Wright put me at ease immediately with his demeanor without losing that professional air about him. I felt he listened to me fully understanding why I was there, and that I could trust his diagnosis along with his recommended remedy. I wish all doctors were like him."
  • September 12, 2023
"Dr. Wright and his staff were very professional, accommodating, and communicative. Dr. Wright explained the process from start to end; including what to expect. The office communication was superb and never left you feeling what’s next. I totally recommend utilizing Dr. Wright’s expertise to improve your physical appearance."

"I had lipo breast reduction! It looks great and no down time without any scars. Him and his staff are supper nice and understanding."
  • June 28, 2023
"This was my second time for varicose vein treatment. Eight years ago I was treated by Dr Wright, and when new ones appeared I knew he would be the best choice. I loved having one other person, in my case, Crystal, be the one who was with me through every appointment, in addition to Dr. Wright. The office staff is knowledgeable and friendly. My leg looks better again, and doesn't hurt anymore."
  • June 23, 2023
"Dr. Wright and his amazing staff went above and beyond my expectations! I had 4 lipedema surgeries at Laser Lipo and Vein Center and after several very frustrating and hard years, I feel like myself again. Dr. Wright and his staff not only gave me back the ability to live without pain, but also the tools I need to keep lipedema at bay. Their knowledge, compassion, and care definitely solidified the fact that I made the best decision by choosing them."

"I’ve been to a lot of doctors. Some are great in a way and not so great in others. Some are generally pleasant, some are not. But this doctor was the best I have ever seen. He was polite, patient, soft spoken, informational, and kind in the way he treated me. I have answers today. I have validation today. And that’s because of what this team does here for their patients and for everyone else in the world looking for information and care. I drove 3.5 hours to see Dr. Wright and his team today, and it was nothing short of amazing. I was comfortable the whole time, the nurse was extremely pleasant, and not once did I feel insecure or rushed. These people are worth the drive, worth the wait and the life experience is going to be unforgettable. They come highly recommended for a number of reasons - and I can now say I know why. It was so nice to be here today and I look forward to the next steps in my life with Dr. Wright and his team. THANK YOU!!!!"

"You have been seeing Dr. Wright on and off for years. He is the only doctor I will go to for my varicose veins. He treated me recently for a DVT. He is so compassionate and caring. His staff is top notch. When you get to know him as a doctor, he treats you as a friend. He is beyond a smart doc. I love him!"
