After over two decades of treating patients in the Cath Lab and working to successfully preserve not only heart attack patients but also treating for Peripheral Vascular Disease, salvaging limbs became one of Dr. Smalling’s greatest passions. He has never lost one patient’s leg.
However, radiation exposure for Interventional Cardiology specialists takes its toll, so naturally, practicing on the venous side of medicine was an ideal fit for Dr. Smalling. For nearly five years now, IN VEIN Smalling Vascular Institute LLC has been in the greater Kansas City area providing superior clinical support, diagnostics, and treatment in the Chronic Venous Disease (CVD) environment.
Come see why so many of the area’s specialists send patients from the Kansas City hospital systems and clinics to have Dr. Smalling assess and treat their patients’ legs. You do not need a referral from your Primary Care Physician to be assessed and treated by Dr Smalling.
It is estimated that at least 80 million Americans – more than 25% of the US population – suffers from some form of venous disorder.

The need in KC led Dr. Smalling to heed his colleagues' requests for him to consider relocation and bring his skill set and years of expertise in peripheral vascular disease with hundreds of limb salvaging successes to the metro area. He is a pioneer limb vascular health management
specialist with a modern, professional clinic and staff. His practice makes him the only
Interventional Cardiologist in a private practice solely dedicated to the art and skill of treating
patients’ troubling side effects of lower extremity inefficient venous system and CVI. He's waiting
to meet with you and to hear your concerns!
