Choosing the Right Doctor for Your Vein Treatment
Spider and varicose veins are often an outward symptom of an underlying vein condition. Because the treatment of these visible veins may be more than a cosmetic procedure, it is important to choose a specialist in the field of vein disorders to address your veins and the possibility of an additional medical condition. The staff at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan have tips to help you choose the best physician for your needs.
Board certification is probably one of the most important characteristics to look for in your vein doctor. This certification lets you know the physician has committed to a higher level of patient care and safety in diagnosing and treating venous disorders. Dr. Ronald Lev at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan is certified by the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine, a certification awarded to less than one percent of all phlebology professional in the U.S. and Canada. This board certification demonstrates Dr. Lev’s skill, knowledge and experience in the area of vein care.
Many doctors may say they offer vein treatments, but how many focus solely on the diagnosis and treatment of vein conditions every single day? When you choose a physician that primarily performs vein treatments, you can rest assured that doctor has the experience necessary to diagnose and treat a wide range of vein disorders. You wouldn’t go to a neurologist for a heart problem, so why would you trust your veins to a physician that does not specialize in this area of medicine? Choose a physician that knows vein disorders inside and out to ensure you get the highest quality of care and treatment available today.
Proper treatment of vein disorders begins with the right diagnosis. Today, most diagnostics in this area are performed using modern ultrasound equipment that can provide complete images of the vessels and the blood flowing inside. Your vein specialist should have the latest in ultrasound devices that allow them to accurately and precisely diagnose the source of your varicose veins. This allows the physician to treat your condition with precision, safety and success.
State-of-the-Art Treatment Options
Once your vein condition is accurately diagnosed, the vein specialist you choose should have state-of-the-art procedures available to treat your condition and eliminate your visible vessels. Today’s technology has allowed veins to be eradicated using minimally-invasive procedures that do not involve significant discomfort or downtime. Your physician should be able to choose from a variety of options that allow for customization of your treatment to your specific situation and needs.
