Dr. Matz, the founder of Canada Vein Clinics, is a general surgeon who has dedicated his practice to treating venous disease. He has established himself as an expert in the field by bringing new treatments to Canada, consistently publishing work in scientific journals and leading national societies and meetings. His education, experience and prowess establish him as the premier vein doctor in Canada and one you can trust to help you make decisions regarding your treatment.
A New Way to See Veins
Dr. Matz’s mission, and what sets him apart from other vein specialists, is to end the categorization of vein treatment as cosmetic. Varicose and spider veins, though not necessarily life threatening conditions themselves, are signs of insufficient blood circulation and may lead to more serious medical issues if gone untreated.
It is important to Dr. Matz that each patient is treated with individual care and each case is evaluated as unique. It is this approach that has led to his high regard in the field amongst fellow surgeons and vein specialists as well as patients who have been under his care. His compassion and understanding for each case helps him to earn patient trust and give the best quality treatment.
Because every person’s physiology and venous insufficiency are unique, often Dr. Matz combines non-invasive techniques with minimally-invasive procedures for precise results. For example, non-invasive techniques such as Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) and Sclerotherapy can be combined with a Mini-Phlebectomy for results that are custom-fitted to a patient’s specific needs.
The Educated Truth
When it comes to your health, always choose your doctor based on education and experience. A strong background tells you the most about your specialist. Dr. Matz is a physician and a general surgeon, certified by the Royal College of the Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. As a general surgeon, he specializes in minimally invasive procedures. Paired with his years studying venous disease, Dr. Matz’s position as a general surgeon further qualifies him to treat your condition effectively.
It is important to evaluate the qualifications of your doctor before choosing someone to create your treatment plan, and Dr. Matz is considered one of the leading authorities on venous disease in Canada. The following fellowships and memberships he holds prove his influence in the field and expertise when it comes to your care:
- Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada

Dr. Matz is not only educated and trained to serve his patients, he is one of Canada’s experts in the field of Phlebology (the study of veins). He has developed many minimally invasive procedures to treat venous disease and was even the first physician to introduce Endovenous Laser Ablations to Atlantic Canada. This procedure (often known as EVLA) is one of the most effective ways of treating varicose veins.
Dr. Matz has years of experience in minimally invasive surgery and phlebology. In addition to founding and running Canada Vein Clinics, Dr. Matz is an active general and leading advanced laparoscopic surgeon at the Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay, Ontario. His experience extends beyond his vein treatments, and his role as a surgeon gives him a wider perspective on treatment options and what suits each of his patients best.
Renowned amongst his peers, Dr. Matz has authored many scientific publications which have been presented at Provincial, National and International Surgical meetings. These include The Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons in New York in 2004 and The XXXV Congress of the Interational College of Surgeons in Pattaya, Thailand in 2006.
Canada Vein Clinics
Canada Vein Clinics fulfill Dr. Matz’s passion of treating venous disease and helping his patients heal and care for themselves. The belief that treating venous disease is more than just cosmetic has been the founding principle of this practice and has influenced the amazing transformation and recovery of each patient.
Varicose and Spider Veins are typically treated as cosmetic issues by vein treatment centers. The difference in the way Dr. Matz has founded his clinics affects not only patient results, but also the way patients feel when they leave a meeting with their physician. Understanding that Venous Insufficiency is always an underlying factor in any venous disease gives patients the assurance that Dr. Matz cares about their overall health and wants to help them heal to feel and be better, not just to look better.
