Vein Specialists

While varicose veins, spider veins, and venous stasis are quite common, effective treatment is still a specialized form of medicine. If you are concerned about your spider veins or varicose veins, you should consider seeing a local vein specialist. The Ultimate Vein Guide wants you to not only find the right professional but also give you some things to look for in a vein specialist.

Who provides treatment for varicose veins and spider veins?

In the United States, any licensed physician can legally provide treatments for venous disease. However, only a few types of physicians specialize in varicose vein treatment and the treatment of chronic venous disease. These professionals are collectively referred to as vein specialists.

Because of their residency and fellowship training, vein specialists are more likely to practice specific medical specialties. Vein specialists are often:

  • Vascular surgeons
  • General surgeons
  • Plastic surgeons
  • Interventional cardiologists
  • Interventional radiologists

Vein specialists may also be phlebologists. Phlebology is the highly specialized field of vein diseases and treatment. In the United States, these professionals will be diplomates of the American College of Phlebology. Lastly, some vein specialists will also hold either the RVT or RPVI credentials. RVT  stands for Registered Vascular Technologist, while RPVI stands for Registered Physician in Vascular Interpretation.

What to Look for in a Vein Specialist

If you are considering sclerotherapy, laser vein treatment, ablation, or surgery, it is essential to find a vein specialist with an MD or DO degree and licensed to practice medicine. Board certification is also a reliable indicator of academic achievement in a provider’s given specialty.

One of the most important things to look for in a vein specialist is-experience. Find out how long the vein doctor has been treating veins. Most vein treatment procedures are technically straightforward, but errors, incomplete treatment, complications, and adverse events are possible. Online reviews can be one of your most powerful tools in finding a vein doctor to perform your vein treatment. Another great way to help choose a vein specialist is to see examples of the physician’s work (e.g., before and after photos). However be aware, that a physician will choose their most successful cases to show to potential clients.

Perhaps the most useful way to find a qualified vein specialist is to get a referral from a family doctor or friend. They are usually the best source for quality vein specialists in your area. Lastly, meet for a free consultation, if possible. You can judge a lot about a professional just by meeting with him or her. Trust your instincts and don’t be afraid to get a second opinion from another vein specialist.
