20 Jan Ponte Vedra Vein Institute: Home to the Only Female Interventional Radiologist in Northeast Florida Treating Vein Disease
Pride and passion are often two traits that go hand-in-hand. Results of excellence, after all, are born in the space where the two collide, as well as the collaborative effort of those seeking to better the lives of those around them.
And here at Ponte Vedra Vein Institute, we are not only passionate about our standing as a first-rate vein center, but we are also proud to be home to Northeast Florida’s only female Interventional Radiologist who treats vein diseases!
Since 2003, Dr. Megan Deacon-Casey — lead physician and co-founder of Ponte Vedra Vein Institute — has been practicing in Jacksonville, sharing her passion and expertise in the treatment of vein disease, as well as vascular disease diagnosis, chronic venous insufficiency care, uterine fibroid treatment, and more.
And leading up to her current status as a prominent medical director and interventional specialist, Dr. Deacon-Casey has a long and proven history of continued excellence.
Having started her career at Meharry Medical College, she earned her degree while achieving membership in the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and completing a comprehensive internship with Nashville General Hospital.
Following this, Dr. Deacon-Casey went on to complete a Diagnostic Radiology Residency at Jacksonville’s renowned Mayo Clinic, as well as fellowship training in Vascular and Interventional Radiology at University of Florida/Shands in Jacksonville.
Finally, equipped with extensive experience and a desire to transform patient care in Jacksonville, Dr. Deacon-Casey became the Chief of Interventional Radiology at St. Vincent’s Healthcare, Southside Campus prior to co-founding Ponte Vedra Vein Institute and Diagnostic Center.
Dr. Deacon-Casey is board-certified by the American Board of Radiology in both Diagnostic Radiology and Vascular and Interventional Radiology and holds professional memberships in:
- The American College of Radiology
- The American Roentgen Ray Society
- The Society of Interventional Radiology
- The American Vein Lymphatic Society
Now, continuing her care practices and commitment to her patients, Dr. Deacon-Casey not only specializes in vascular disease with minimally invasive treatments but dedicates herself to sharing her knowledge with others and staying up to date on the most current and effective vein/vascular treatments.
For example, In 2016, Dr. Deacon-Casey performed the first VenaSeal ™ procedure in Northeast Florida to treat varicose veins, effectively introducing the Jacksonville community to an entirely new means of innovative vein treatment.
With such a history of excellence, we can guarantee that Ponte Vedra Vein Institute is the right vein center for you! If you have further questions about our services, or if you would like to schedule your free vein screening, contact us today by calling (904) 280-0600.
