After months (maybe even years) or deliberating and procrastinating, you’ve finally made the decision to get treatment for your varicose or spider veins. But now what? We’re sure you’ve done your research, and maybe even know all about the history of vein treatment methods, but choosing a phlebologist, or vein specialist, isn’t as simple as just checking out reviews on Yelp. Not if you want a professional, helpful and Board Certified specialist.
The truth is, not all vein doctors are created equal. That’s why it’s important to know your physician’s background, expertise and training. In conducting your research on vein disease, you might have found a few doctors in your area advertising their services. Some of these may have been general practitioners others might have been dermatologists. However, you should look for a physician who is a highly trained specialist in treating the circulatory system, such as a Board Certified vascular surgeon. That is a safe bet for a high quality, minimally invasive, quick and pain-free procedure, with results that last.
Although technological developments have allowed for less invasive vein treatments, they are still considered interventional procedures. If not performed correctly, complications are possible. This is why choosing the best surgeon is important; you’ll want someone knowledgeable and who will take your procedure seriously, not matter how routine it is for them.
