If you have been diagnosed with venous insufficiency, finding
a qualified doctor to help you manage your condition is essential. You only get
one set of legs—don't trust just anyone to help you feel (and look!) your best.
venous insufficiency (CVI) is a disorder that impacts the leg veins, making
it harder for blood to flow normally from the legs back up to the heart, forcing
blood to pool in the lower limbs. Also known as venous disease or vein disease,
the disorder is the root cause of varicose
veins and spider
veins. Vein disease can cause leg pain, swelling, aching, and cramping, and
if left untreated, can worsen, leading to skin discoloration and thickening,
ulcers, and even deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
How to choose the right doctor
Choosing the right doctor may seem overwhelming, especially if
you are unfamiliar with vascular medicine—but it doesn't have to be if you know
the qualities to look for when searching for a vein specialist.
Here are five tips for choosing the right doctor to treat your
venous insufficiency symptoms.
Make sure your vein doctor is board-certified
Selecting a board-certified physician
to treat your varicose veins is essential. Certification shows that your doctor
has completed additional training and passed a rigorous exam. According to the American
Board of Physician Specialties, having certification "testifies to the
physician's mastery in their respective field of medicine. Further, it identifies
the most qualified physicians and suggests which would be the best fit for a
job opening in a particular medical specialty.”
