Do I Need a Varicose Vein Specialist? What Kind of Doctor Takes Care of Veins? 

Varicose veins are unhealthy, big, blue, twisted, veins that are visible below the surface of your skin. They are most commonly found in your legs, though they can appear in other areas of your body. Many people develop varicose veins. Since they don’t always cause discomfort, most people don’t seek treatment for the condition. However, even when varicose veins are painless, they should be checked by a specialized physician – a varicose vein specialist. They can be a symptom of serious underlying vein disease.

What Kind of Doctor Should I See for Varicose Veins? Who is a Varicose Vein Specialist?

If you suffer from varicose veins, make an appointment to be examined by a varicose vein specialist. It is important to note that there are a variety of healthcare providers who work in this area, but they don’t all have the same qualifications. For example, dermatologists may offer certain types of varicose vein treatment, but they do not have the expertise necessary to diagnosis vein disease.

It is also unnecessary to see a vascular surgeon. Significant advances in medical science have made invasive varicose vein surgery unnecessary for many situations. Today, the varicose vein treatments used most frequently are endovascular. That means they are minimally invasive, and they are performed right inside the affected veins. Most can be performed in just 15 – 30 minutes, and you can often return to your regular activities the same day.

Instead of a vein surgeon, choose a highly-skilled physician who specializes in venous medicine to examine and treat your condition. Your doctor should be Board Certified and well-trained in this area of expertise, so that you can be sure of an accurate diagnosis and safe, effective treatment.

How Do I Choose a Varicose Vein Specialist?

Your primary care physician may refer you to a varicose vein specialist, but it is always a good idea to do your own research. Most doctors have websites that list their credentials, so you can ensure that they are Board Certified and educated in the area of vein-related medicine.

When choosing any doctor, there are a few questions you should ask:

Are you Board Certified?

How long have you been in practice?

Where did you go to Medical School? Where did you complete residency training?

Do you offer early, late, and/or weekend appointments?

How long will it take to get an appointment?

Are you accessible after hours?

These questions will help you confirm that your physician is a varicose vein specialist, and you can be sure that office hours are available to fit your schedule. Finally, make sure that you feel comfortable with your doctor, because it is important that you share all of your concerns to get the treatment you need. Consider whether your doctor seems to pay close attention to you and asks you questions. A good varicose vein specialist will treat you like an individual and respect your needs, remember you at each subsequent visit and care about you as a person.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

It is a common misconception that varicose veins are a harmless and purely cosmetic issue, and that they are inevitable as you grow older. Women often believe that they are an unavoidable part of pregnancy or menopause, and individuals who spend a lot of time on their feet notice varicose veins appearing or getting worse. Being overweight can exacerbate the problem, and so can a sedentary lifestyle. However, these risk factors are not the root cause of varicose veins.

Every blood vessel relies on tiny valves to keep blood flowing in the right direction. Blood in your veins is directed towards your heart, and the valves ensure that it doesn’t flow the wrong way. When the valves stop working properly, your blood might start to leak backwards. As the condition gets more serious, blood starts to pool in the lower part of your body.

When blood settles in the lower part of your body, it causes pressure on your veins. The extra volume presses against the blood vessel walls, which weakens them. The veins get wider and thicker, and they start to swell against your skin. This causes the unsightly purple, red, and blue twists and knots that make your skin bulge, otherwise known as varicose veins.

For some patients, varicose veins are uncomfortable and unattractive, but they do not carry any serious health risks. Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Varicose veins can be caused by an underlying vein disease called Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). This condition often goes undiagnosed, which can put patients at risks for additional health issues, which is why it is so important to see a varicose vein specialist.

The varicose vein specialists at the Vein Treatment Center are highly qualified. They have successfully completed rigorous medical programs at prominent medical schools, including Harvard, Yale, and the University of Chicago. Each has been recognized with a variety of awards and commendations for excellence in the field, and the entire practice is devoted to your care.
