Vein disorders such as varicose veins or spider veins can be a difficult problem to deal with. In addition to the pain and discomfort caused by prolonged standing or sitting, most vein disorders appear as unsightly, swollen blood vessels on the surface of your skin that make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed to the extent of keeping any areas with protruding veins covered at all times.
When you make the decision to treat your vein disorder, you should find a skilled and experienced vein specialist to diagnose the problem and help you come up with a custom treatment plan for your specific case.
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.
Some of the requirements of the right vein specialist include:
- Dedicated to continuous learning – the specialist should be up-to-date with the newest treatments in the field. This dramatically increases the chances of finding a treatment plan that is most effective for your specific case. And with advances in technology, you have the opportunity to enjoy new treatments that are less invasive and more comfortable than those available a few years ago.
- 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. Although certification is a voluntary process, the licensure is primarily used to indicate the minimum requirements for competency in order to diagnose and treat patients in this specialty.
