Welcome to Viva Vein Center

Dr. Faraj Hanna al-kass is a double board-certified fellowship-trained Vascular and non-vascular Interventional Radiologist. He finished his Radiology Residency at the American university of Beirut, Lebanon. Then, he completed his Interventional Radiology fellowship at the university of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. After completing his fellowship at the university of Iowa, Dr. Hanna al-kass stayed on faculty for additional one year. Then, he was appointed as an assistant professor at the Detroit Medical Center/ Wayne State University. In addition to his clinical responsibilities and patients’ care, Dr. Hanna al-kass was also involved in the education and training of residents and fellows in the field of mini-surgery and minimally invasive vascular/ non-vascular interventional procedures. Over the last five years, Dr. Hanna al-kass has devoted most of his time and expertise in the fight and treatment of the debilitating vascular disease that usually resulted in a miserable life style and limb amputation if left untreated.

Dr. Hanna al-kass is an advocate for Uterus Preserving Procedures (UPP). He has an experience in the treatment of uterine fibroids and adenomyosis by performing a minimally-invasive image guided Uterine Artery Embolization (UFE/ UAE). UAE is an alternative management for hysterectomy and myomectomy.

Dr. Hanna al-kass is also well versed in the treatment and management of superficial venous disease (varicose veins, telangiectasia, spider veins) seen primarily in the legs, and to lesser extent in the arms, face and breasts ( dilated veins).

Dr. Hanna al-kass offers outpatient consultations in multiple locations throughout central and Southern California.


Nowadays, with the advances in the medical technology, most of the procedures are being performed in outpatient centers as one day surgery. Arterial and uterine/ fibroid procedures require conscious sedation( twilight sleep). Varicose vein procedures require local anesthesia. Spider veins treatment usually requires no anesthesia.
