Should your Vein Specialist be Certified?

Vein disorders such as varicose veins or spider veins can cause pain and discomfort, especially when you sit or stand for extended hours. But the fact that they appear as unsightly, swollen blood vessels on the surface of your skin also means that they make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed to the extent of keeping any areas with protruding veins covered at all times.

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 experienced vein specialist to diagnose the problem and help you come up with a custom treatment plan for your specific case.

But is board certification an important requirement in 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. 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:

  • Participation in continuing education to remain current with the newest advances in your medical field of specialty
  • Participation in ongoing training to keep current on best practices in providing quality health care, patient safety, and establishing a patient-oriented and responsive environment

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. To determine the actual status of a doctor, you should contact the relevant board. 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.
