Although it is possible to find temporary relief from the itching and swelling by elevating your feet, staying active, and using compression stocking, the underlying problem is yet to be solved, and the symptoms will keep re-emerging. When you make the decision to treat your vein disorder, you should find a skilled and certified vein specialist to diagnose the problem and help you come up with a custom treatment plan for your specific case.
Although certification is a voluntary process, the certification is primarily used to indicate the minimum requirements for competency in order to diagnose and treat patients in this specialty. Board-certification – only a board-certified vein specialist can help you deal with your problem satisfactorily. Just as it is natural for a person with a heart condition to visit a cardiologist as opposed to a general practitioner, it is also rational for an individual with vein problems to visit a vein specialist.
Certification helps to keep the vein disease treatment specialty current through:
If you choose a board-certified physician, you can trust that your doctor is dedicated to his/her field, and will provide the best possible care through lifelong learning. A physician who’s board-certified is that much more dedicated to providing quality care. With the relevant training, skills, and experience, you can have peace of mind knowing that your doctor will deliver the most effective solution for you.
