Certified phlebologists must pass an exam administered by the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine, which helps to ensure that the physician is competent in the diagnosis of venous diseases, the use of duplex ultrasound and other imaging tools, and the administration of various treatments for venous conditions.
The experience level of a phlebologist determines the number of techniques at their disposal for the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins.
Vascular surgeons are trained to provide comprehensive care for disorders affecting the circulatory system - arteries, veins, and capillaries - as well as conditions affecting the lymphatic system - network of tissues and organs that help the body get rid of toxins.
Also known as “pinhole surgeons,” these medical professionals specialize in using X-rays, ultrasound, MRI, and other imaging techniques to treat different types of organ and tissue-related diseases using minimally invasive approaches.
Interventional radiologists use imaging techniques to visualize conditions in the body while simultaneously administering treatments, which makes them well suited to diagnose and treat various venous complications, including varicose veins and spider veins.
