What kind of doctor specializes in veins?

A vein specialist is a rather broad umbrella term for a group of doctors who are usually very successful cardiologists, dermatologists, and interventional radiologists, and they are board-certified in their respective specialties. These doctors will usually then take additional courses and medical training in vein treatment and other cosmetic venous treatments and procedures.

A vascular surgeon is a vein doctor who has been specifically and extensively trained to be able to diagnose and treat all types of arterial and venous disorders and diseases. These doctors don’t typically treat more cosmetic vein issues, which include varicose and spider veins. Not to say they do not treat these cosmetic vein issues, because they absolutely do. Vascular surgeons will consult with the other vein doctors to be able to provide additional advice or should more invasive surgery be needed.

What does a vein specialist do?

A vascular surgeon is trained and certified to diagnose, treat, and manage conditions in their patient’s arteries and veins, also called the body’s blood vessels. These specialists are proud to help you treat a wide range of health problems. Some of which include spider and varicose veins, life-threatening aneurysms, and can also help their patients manage chronic venous conditions throughout their lives.

What type of doctors provide treatments for varicose and spider veins?

The first doctor you will probably visit when you have any questions regarding varicose veins very well might be your general practitioner or a family doctor. This type of doctor is probably not a vein doctor; however, you may ask them to refer you to one. In this case, come and talk to the experts on venous issues at Advanced Vascular Associates. We are conveniently located near you in Teaneck NJ.

When your general or family doctor sees any bulging or discolored veins, that may be bruising and/or bleeding near your ankles – he or she needs to refer you to another kind of doctor, one who specifically specializes and is certified in diagnosing and treating varicose veins. The medical field has this process in place because vein disease, like many other diseases, requires a special type knowledge to properly diagnose and treat. We can all agree that vein diagnosis is best done by a vein doctor who on a regular basis performs specialized vein treatment procedures.

What specialty services can treat varicose and spider veins?

Fortunately, getting vein treatments or surgery usually does not mean a hospital stay or a long and uncomfortable recovery. Thanks to advanced technology, doctors are able to conduct less invasive procedures, varicose veins can usually be treated on an outpatient basis. There are many options that our doctors at Advanced Vascular Associates will discuss with you to make sure you are fully aware of all of your options. Some of the options will include:

Compression stockings

Wearing compression stockings all day will often be the first approach for doctors to try before moving on to other treatment options. The stockings will steadily squeeze your legs, helping veins and leg muscles move blood more fluently. The amount of compression will vary by type of stocking and of course the brand.

Treatments for more severe varicose vein cases

If you do not respond well to compression stockings, or if your condition happens to be more severe – our doctors may suggest one of these varicose vein treatments:

  • Sclerotherapy
  • Laser treatment
  • Ambulatory Phlebectomy
  • Endoscopic vein surgery
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation
  • Venaseal Procedure
  • Pelvic Embolization
