How do I find a top vein specialist doctor near me? Tips from a premier medical center
April 19, 2020
Does your vein doctor have good credentials?
Earlier, only a vascular surgeon could treat common vein diseases like varicose veins and spider veins. Today, with easier, advanced treatment options, any physician can treat vein disease, provided that they have enough experience. So, what makes a good vein doctor? Training from a well known medical school is a good starter. Also, a physician who is board certified is a cut above those who are not. Having been a chief resident, or having won prestigious awards – all these add points to the kind of vein doctor who is at the top of their game, and the kind that you would visit.
Does your vein doctor have a badge of expertise in vein medicine?
Although vein doctors do not require a specific degree, there are certain diplomas that attest to a vein doctor’s expertise in the field. A certification from the American board of vein medicine shows that your vein doctor is an expert. Diagnosis of vein disease, and its management both require expertise in using a specific imaging technology called an ultrasound. This allows the vein doctor to look at the pattern of blood flow in your veins, and detect chronic venous insufficiency. Ultrasounds are also used during the treatment process, to help locate the vein that needs to be treated. Having an Advanced Certification in Vascular Imaging attests to a vein specialist’s expertise in imaging technology.
Does your vein doctor perform minimally invasive procedures?
Today, varicose veins are not treated by surgery – they are cured using minimally invasive treatment procedures like radiofrequency ablation or laser treatment. These procedures are simple, comfortable and can be done with just numbing injections.
It isn’t enough that your doctor be trained in performing minimally invasive procedures – they should be aware of the latest technology available in treating varicose veins and spider veins. The more advanced, state of the art minimally invasive procedures available today eliminate the local anesthetic injection, and do not even require small incisions! This makes them a lot more painless and comfortable. The two latest procedures available today include:
VenaSeal: In this technique, medical grade glue is delivered directly into the vein. The glue blocks up the vein, and hardens in a few hours, sealing off the vein permanently. This does not work by the ‘melt and scar’ method, you don’t even have to go through a stage of painful healing that can occur with other procedures.
Clarivein: This delivers a medicated solution called ‘sclerosant’ to your veins through a catheter. The catheter has a rotating tip, which disperses the solution in all directions, throughout the vein. The solution makes the vein walls sticky, and they adhere to each other, sealing the veins off.
What kind of reviews does your vein doctor have?
Why is this important? Well, a vein doctor’s bio may tell you all about their skills and experience, but it won’t tell you much about an important feature – bedside manner. Is this important? Yes! A vein doctor who is kind, and takes the time to listen to your complaints is more likely to figure out what is wrong. Also, when you get a vein procedure done, having someone who is calm and understanding can allay your concerns and fears, and help you get through the process a lot more comfortably! You can only gauge all this through a previous patient’s experience, and that is where reviews come in.
I have a varicose veins specialist name. What comes next?
So, your search for a ‘vein specialist doctor near me’ is complete, and you have managed to choose a good vein doctor from among the results. What do you do next? Call up the vein clinic where the vein doctor practices, and schedule a consultation!
At your first visit, your vein specialist will record your medical history and any specific complaints that you have. Your vein doctor will also examine your veins thoroughly, and may also use a duplex ultrasound to detect the pattern of blow flow in your veins. This will allow the vein physician to find out exactly where the defective veins are, and will help in planning your treatment accordingly.
Once your customized treatment plan is ready, all you have to do is follow through! You can schedule your vein procedure at a time that is convenient to you. This does not require much time or preparation – you can arrive at the vein clinic just before your scheduled procedure, which in most cases takes less than an hour. These procedures do not need sedation, or extended recovery time. You can leave right after the procedure, and get back to your regular routine right away!
