Why it is important that your vein doctor is a vascular surgeon!

  Vein centers have become very common in NJ. How can a patient determine if the doctors there have the needed training to give their patients the best results? Many patients with varicose veins suffer from chronic venous insufficiency, due to a dysfunction of the one way valves of the veins in the leg.  Specialized diagnositc procedures with ultrasound are needed to make the proper diagnosis along with taking a thorough medical history and physical exam. Vascular surgeons receive years of specialized training during their residency post medical school in the diagnosis, management and treatment of venous disease. No other specialty has this experience. Not Cardiology, radiology, family practice, anesthesia, pain specialists or thoracic surgery.

  It is unclear why many doctors without the dedicated training during residency decide to become "vein specialists" other than the economics of medical practice today.  The state has very few limitations for practicing physicians regulating the procedures that they perform in their office. 

  Ask your vein doctor if they are a board certified in Vascular Surgery!
