Find A Board Certified Venous & Lymphatic Physician To Treat Your Varicose Veins!

Posted on February 8, 2016 by Dr. Stephen Rivard

office-01.jpgThere are currently more than 80 million people suffering from venous disease in the United States alone. Vein diseases like varicose and spider veins are often thought of as solely cosmetic concerns, but the truth is that without treatment they can lead to continued side effects and severe problems. Symptoms like pain, fatigue, and swelling are common, and in more serious situations patients can develop Edema (an excess of watery fluid collecting in the leg tissue), Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots in the leg), and even venous ulcers.

Many different types of physicians now offer treatment for vein diseases, but unless a doctor meets certain qualifications, their patients seeking relief are at risk for receiving inadequate treatment. A patient’s best option is to consult a vein expert, a Board Certified venous and lymphatic physician with experience in ultrasonography. 

Board Certification for venous and lymphatic medicine comes directly from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM). This certification ensures that a physician has undergone specialized training to identify the root causes of an individual patient’s vein disease, properly diagnose their symptoms, and perform the most effective procedures based on their individual circumstances. Additional certification in ultrasonography is important because it means they have been properly trained and certified to perform a Doppler Duplex ultrasound, the key diagnostic tool used to diagnose vein disease.

Patients seeking treatment for vein disease should also look into the number of successful treatments a physician has performed, which treatments they offer, and testimonials from their patients. These credentials signify a physician's extensive knowledge and specialized skills in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease. If you find yourself experiencing symptoms of varicose or spider veins, why go to anyone else?
