Bio

Dr. Nick Morrison is the co-founder and Medical Director of Morrison Training Institute and the Morrison Vein Institute.  He received a Jesuit education, including the Creighton University College of Medicine, where he graduated in 1972, and completed a four-year General Surgery Residency at the Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona.  He maintained a private general surgical practice for 23 years, and in 1995, Dr. Morrison and his wife, Terri, established the Morrison Vein Institute.  Since that time, Dr. Morrison has concentrated his surgical practice on the care and treatment of venous disorders. He has become involved in all aspects of vein care, including duplex scanning, visual sclerotherapy, laser/pulsed light therapy, ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, ambulatory phlebectomy, and endovenous thermal and chemical ablation (radiofrequency, lasers of various wavelengths, and foamed sclerosants).   Dr Morrison is Immediate Past President of the American College of Phlebology, Chairman of the Board of the American College of Phlebology Foundation, and Vice President of the International Union of Phlebology. He has authored several book chapters on varying aspects of venous disease, and additionally has published scientific articles in the phlebologic literature.   Beginning in 1989, and annually since, Dr. Morrison has directed a medical volunteer organization, Amigos de Salud, and led the group each summer to Central or South America delivering medical and surgical treatment for the indigent populations of Ecuador, Peru, and Nicaragua.   Dr. Morrison enjoys travel, development of international relationships, backpacking, triathlon, rowing, classical music, and opera.
