Compassionate. Innovative. Results driven.
Dr. Alexander Matz is the leading pioneer of advanced minimally invasive venous procedures in Canada. As the founder of Canada Vein Clinics, he was one of the first General Surgeons to focus on the broad spectrum of Phlebology and to successfully perform the Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). Since opening Canada Vein Clinics more than fifteen years ago, Dr. Matz has performed thousands of successful varicose and spider vein treatments.
Unlike the majority of venous care physicians who treat varicose and spider veins as only a cosmetic condition, Dr. Matz treats every patient’s situation as a serious medical issue which requires specialized care and support. By pairing high-quality patient care with custom-tailored spider and varicose vein treatment, Dr. Matz and his medical team provide comfort, confidence, and a thorough personalized follow-up. At Canada Vein Clinics, every patient is family.

We treat spider and varicose veins differently.
At Canada Vein Clinics, we understand the meaning of compassionate patient care and strive to exceed your expectations while delivering your personalized treatment plan. Our patients come to us seeking answers about their venous conditions, and we provide solutions.
Venous disease is one of the most prevalent medical conditions in adults worldwide. In fact, roughly 50% of people will suffer from a venous condition in their lifetime. Both spider and varicose veins are signs of a medical condition known as venous insufficiency, and, therefore, should be correctly diagnosed and treated appropriately.
Symptoms of these conditions include:
- Leg heaviness
- Leg fatigue
- Leg and foot pain
- Restless legs
- Skin discoloration
- Swollen ankles
If left undiagnosed or incorrectly treated, venous insufficiency may result in serious or even life-threatening complications. There is more at stake than just looking good!
