Interventional radiologist Amanda Steinberger named a 2024 Castle Connolly Top Doctor

Amanda L. Steinberger, DO, has been recognized as a 2024 Castle Connolly Top Doctor, the second year she has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor.

    LA JOLLA & VISTA, CA, February 20, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Amanda L. Steinberger, DO, has been recognized as a 2024 Castle Connolly Top Doctor, the second year she has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor. Only about 7 percent of the nation's licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

Dr. Steinberger is an interventional radiologist who specializes in venous medicine— specifically, the evaluation and treatment of superficial vein disease. This includes conditions such as varicose veins, venous reflux/insufficiency, spider veins, and venous thrombosis.

She is with La Jolla Vein & Vascular, a state-of-the-art practice offering comprehensive minimally invasive vein care, with a vascular-ultrasound laboratory in both its La Jolla and Vista locations.

Dr. Steinberger is board certified by the American Board of Radiology in interventional radiology and diagnostic radiology. She is also certified by the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine.

In addition to evaluating and conservatively managing patients' vein issues, she performs advanced, minimally invasive treatment procedures including thermal ablation, sclerotherapy, and cosmetic laser.

"Over 80 million Americans have some type of vein disorder — from cosmetic things like spider veins to symptomatic varicose veins. We're fortunate at La Jolla Vein & Vascular to be able to offer patients every available minimally invasive treatment for these issues," says Dr. Steinberger. "We use these image-guided, minimally invasive procedures instead of procedures that used to be very invasive. Varicose veins, for example, used to be treated with an invasive surgery called vein stripping."

The vascular procedures she and her colleagues perform are safe and significantly improve people's quality of life with minimal downtime.

"Everything we do is low risk and high reward for patients," she says. "It's life altering without having a long or difficult recovery."

Patients can expect a holistic, comprehensive approach to their care at their first visit with Dr. Steinberger. A typical first visit usually includes an ultrasound examination, followed by a detailed review of the patient's concerns and discussion of treatment options with Dr. Steinberger.

Dr. Steinberger earned her medical degree at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She completed her internship and a four-year residency in diagnostic radiology at Mercy Catholic Medical Center, during which she served as chief resident during her final year.

She completed a fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School.

Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.

This is the second year that Dr. Steinberger's peers nominated her as a Connolly Top Doctor. Dr. Steinberger is known by her patients for her exemplary bedside manner and by referring clinicians across the nation for her expertise in managing the most complex cases in her subspecialty.
