Joseph Ty Bell, MD

Dr. Bell earned his undergraduate and medical degrees from the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill. (Go HEELS!). He then completed his residency in family medicine in 1991 at the University of Wyoming—Casper, where he served as Chief Resident. Dr. Bell sought out his residency program due to its heavy emphasis on surgical and minor surgical procedures. Dr. Bell completed his training and performed operative obstetrics, gynecologic procedures, and in-office procedures such as colposcopy and vasectomy. Following residency, prior to his introduction to vein medicine, he worked as a full-time emergency physician for 13 years.

Due to Dr. Bell’s development of symptomatic varicose vein disease and undergoing the modern EVLT laser treatment himself, Dr. Bell was drawn to this new avenue of modern vein medicine in 2004. After apprenticing with one of the country’s renowned vein specialists, in 2005 he started his own vein practice. He remains as passionate today caring for vein sufferers as he did that first day in this modern vein field.
In 2008, Dr. Bell joined the first class of vein specialists to take and complete testing to become a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine.

Dr. Bell has a home in the Mat-Su Valley. When not working, he enjoys traveling with his wife and 2 grown children, spending time with close friends, bicycling, backpacking, flyfishing, and skiing.
