FIGS is Empowering Healthcare Professionals by Investing in Their Success
Article
Our mission at FIGS is to celebrate, empower and serve healthcare professionals. For many, empowerment means founding their own medical practice. By owning their own practice, healthcare professionals can control their own destiny, provide medical care in the way that will create the most impact, and build a successful and rewarding business.

At FIGS, we believe we can help make this happen by investing directly in healthcare professionals—and helping them become entrepreneurs. By doing so, we can not only empower them, we can also help transform healthcare.

With this objective, we’re excited to share that we’ve made a $500,000 equity investment into Access Vascular Health, a new interventional radiology practice in Houston founded by renowned vascular and interventional radiologist, Dr. Michelle Nguyen Maneevese. Interventional radiology is an innovative specialty that enables minimally invasive procedures to treat a variety of serious medical conditions in ways that historically were not possible.

As a company dedicated to supporting healthcare professionals, we believe this is an incredibly exciting and empowering way to support Dr. Maneevese and help her build a medical practice that will make a major impact. It also gives us the ability to participate in the success of a medical practice that we believe will grow significantly in the years ahead and could create a template for making other similar investments in the future.

Congratulations to Dr. Maneevese and Access Vascular Health! We can’t wait to see the impact you create and are thrilled to being playing a role in it.

About Dr. Maneevese

Based in Houston, Dr. Maneevese’s vascular and interventional radiology practice focuses on women’s health (uterine artery embolization, fertility, and pelvic pain) and men’s health (urinary symptoms related to enlarged prostate), and she also has a special interest in treating peripheral arterial disease-causing leg pain, ulcers, and varicose veins. She has successfully performed more prostate artery embolizations than any medical practitioner in the Southern U.S. and she is currently the only female provider of uterine artery embolization in Houston.

Dr. Maneevese’s passion for the field of interventional radiology extends beyond borders. In addition to her medical practice, she works on global health initiatives by traveling internationally to train physicians and to perform minimally invasive procedures for underserved populations that lack access to specialized care. She received her medical education and residency training at the University of Texas at Houston and MD Anderson Cancer Center. Dr. Maneevese then completed her training in interventional radiology at Yale University.
