Franklin S. Yau, MD, FACS, RPVI & Rose An, MD, FACS, RPVI


Situated in the heart of Rowlett, Vanguard Vascular & Vein leads the way in bringing the most advanced vascular and vein treatments to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Franklin S. Yau, MD, RPVI established the practice in 2011 to provide innovative technologies and individualized care in an intimate, welcoming environment.


“I saw a need here since most people had to go to Dallas to get quality care,” says Dr. Yau, who is board certified in vascular and endovascular surgery, general surgery, and internal medicine. “We have a unique ability to take care of patients from a surgical and clinical standpoint right in their own community.”


Dr. Yau founded the practice with three values in mind—he wanted to enjoy his work, run a sustainable practice, and remain resilient regardless of changes in the healthcare industry. “Our purpose isn’t to be the biggest practice. We want to provide the best possible care that will improve the resiliency of our patients,” he says.

Keeping true to his founding values, Dr. Yau has carefully chosen a select and compassionate team that cares for patients with honesty and courtesy. “We have a wonderful staff that we’ve taken time to recruit,” he says. “They’ve been with me from the beginning. We all truly enjoy coming to work every day.”

Vanguard Vascular & Vein provides an array of services and treatment options in a state-of-the-art facility that is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). The practice is one of only two AAAASF-accredited facilities for vascular care in the Dallas area. Vanguard’s Vein Center, which specializes in varicose vein treatments, is the only IAC-accredited Vein Center in Dallas and one of only seven Centers of Excellence in Texas.

Whether patients seek treatment for varicose veins or spider veins, or they need expert care for treating carotid artery disease, kidney failure, or peripheral arterial disease, they can trust they will receive world class care at Vanguard Vascular & Vein. One patient commented, “Dr. Yau and his staff are courteous and prompt, and his bedside manner is second to none!”

Dr. Yau, Dr. Rose An, and their team use a holistic approach to address patients’ vascular care needs. They take time to get to know each patient, listen to their concerns, and create a personalized plan for patients’ specific needs.


“Our vascular patients are lifelong patients,” says Dr. Yau. “When we develop a plan of care, we think of the long-term. We don’t go with the most expedient option. We collaboratively choose the most appropriate option, even if requires more diligent work. Our patients keep coming back because they trust we take care of them.”


If you or a loved one need treatment for vascular disease, trust the experienced vascular surgeons at Vanguard Vascular & Vein.
