Why Choose a Vascular Surgeon

Reasons to Go to a Vascular Surgeon Instead of a Vein Clinic

While varicose veins are not a serious medical condition, they can affect your body image and self-esteem. You may feel like you’re the only one, but you’re not. Millions of people across the globe struggle with varicose veins. They’re most commonly found in the legs, as standing and walking increases pressure on the veins in the lower body. Luckily, there’s a range of varicose vein treatments available to improve the appearance of your legs.

When it comes to finding the right treatment, the first step is to work with a board-certified vascular surgeon. Going to a vein clinic may seem like a quick fix, but it’s not that simple. Oftentimes, vein clinics are staffed with physicians who offer varicose vein treatments who aren’t board-certified. If you’re interested in learning more about why you should go to an experienced vascular surgeon instead of a vein clinic, check out the following section.


While treatments for varicose veins are generally for cosmetic purposes, the circulatory system is complex. An experienced board-certified vascular surgeon will be able to determine treatments for complex cases, as well as address any complications.


Having a board certification is voluntary, but it demonstrates a surgeon’s commitment to patient care and is an achievement of the highest level of knowledge of the circulatory system. In order to maintain this type of certification, they have to continue taking courses to stay up to date with the latest methods and techniques.


No one person is like the other, meaning varicose vein treatments are not a one-size-fits-all. Maintaining a board certification allows vascular surgeons to provide a range of innovative treatment options. During your initial consultation, the vascular surgeon will be able to assess your condition, answer any questions, address concerns, and discuss the risks of varicose vein treatments.
