Rodney Raabe, M.D., is an interventional radiologist board certified in diagnostic radiology with subspecialty certification in vascular and interventional radiology. As co-founder of the former Sapheon, Inc., Dr. Raabe co-invented and developed the technology for what is now known as Medtronic’s VenaSeal™ Closure system. His practice specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad spectrum of venous disorders and interventional radiology procedures. He also has worked in diagnostic neuroradiology for over 30 years. Dr. Raabe earned his medical degree at University of Oregon, Portland in 1979, and completed his diagnostic radiology residency at University of Utah Healthcare, Salt Lake City, where he served as Chief Resident and later completed an ultrasound/CT and interventional radiology fellowship. He opened the Varicose Vein Center at Inland Vascular Institute in 2002.

He has authored or co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed journal articles and abstracts, book chapters, or books. He has been an invited lecture or speaker at more than 60 regional, national, and international medical conferences. He has done extensive research in neuroimaging including MRI, CT in the setting of stroke and carotid stenosis with stenting. Dr. Raabe, whose pioneering efforts in laser and other noninvasive treatments of varicose veins date back nearly two decades, provides physician training throughout the world. His research in varicose vein has led to a new treatment method using minimally invasive medical adhesive to close the great saphenous vein. He has shared his varicose vein procedures and techniques on the faculty of medical education conferences throughout the world. A fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology and member of the American College of Radiology and the Radiological Society of North America, Dr. Raabe has served on numerous medical committees as member, chair or co-chair. In 2003, he formed the Venous Forum Task Force within the Society of Interventional Radiology to bring together interested members of industry and outline a strategic plan for managing all aspects of venous practice for interventional radiology.
