Faces of Omaha is an annual sponsored publication that introduces a variety of “faces,” local industry leaders and experts, to the community. This exclusive publication was carefully cultivated​,​ so only one person and company per business category is invited to participate.

In the publishing industry, this sort of publication is known as “native advertising.” Native advertising is a unique form of sponsored content produced by editorial staff in conjunction with advertisers. The end result is an enjoyable book that has value to both the readers and advertisers.

Everyone featured in the book is truly the “face” of their field. Our sales team spent considerable time cultivating this list.

The following pages introduce more than 100 people and companies, the leaders in their respective areas of expertise, who stand ready to serve their community.

Treatment for varicose veins has improved dramatically in recent years, according to Dr. Stephen Torpy, founder of Totally Vein, the only medical practice in Nebraska that specializes exclusively in vein care. 

“For the first 25 years of my practice we could only offer vein stripping, which was a painful and invasive surgical procedure performed in the hospital under general anesthesia,” explains Dr. Torpy. “About 15 years ago we started doing outpatient procedures under local anesthesia that bring equivalent or better results. People walk out of the office after a procedure and can return to normal activities the same day.” 

The newest procedure, Venaseal, involves putting a medical adhesive inside the malfunctioning vein to shut it off. Venaseal is virtually painless, requiring only a bit of anesthetic at the injection site. In addition to treating varicose veins, Totally Vein offers injection sclerotherapy to erase spider veins on the legs and face. About 80 percent of patients are women, mostly ages 40 to 60, but Totally Vein has treated patients from teenagers to people in their 90s.
