Vein specialists are striving to develop newer and more effective techniques for treating varicose and spider veins. They are also devoted to discovering safer and more advanced methods of treating vein diseases.
Vein specialists have become much more popular and credible in recent years. The importance of seeing a vein specialist is also much more realized and understood than ever before. Patients suffering from varicose veins, spider veins or any type of vein disease used to have little recourse in seeking treatment aside from undergoing vascular surgery. As technologies and techniques have advanced, the options have grown and become much safer than they used to be.
Suffering with vein problems is no longer necessary, and varicose and spider veins are not as life threatening as they once were. Vein specialists are now able to offer safe and efficient treatment options to their patients. These treatments take less time and require less recovery time after undergoing a procedure.
What do Vein Specialists Do?
A vein specialist is an expert in the field of phlebology. This medical specialty employs the use of advanced techniques and technologies to treat varicose veins and spider veins. It is also the medical practice focused on treating vein diseases.
Relatively new to recognition as being trained in a medical specialty field, vein specialists employ the use of several techniques to treat their patients. These techniques may include one or more of the following:
Sclerotherapy: The injection of medication into problem veins, which causes them to collapse and be absorbed into the body
ELA (Endovenous Laser Ablation): The use of a vascular laser to destroy blood vessels while avoiding damage to surrounding skin
Phlebectomy: The surgical removal of problem veins
Why See a Vein Specialist
Vein problems that are left untreated can […]
Veins are removed – swelling and pain is gone in left leg. Right leg is still a little varicose after laser. Yes, I am pleased with the clinical result. So far, so good. Dr. Lee was great – very comfortable procedure – pretty laid back – and that’s good – and reassuring. The surgical physician assistant’s been great. I had a similar phlebectomy a few years back, and this one went so much smoother. Recovery was quick and the procedure was very smooth. The nurse was fine. Everything’s been very professional and courteous here. Thumbs up. In all honesty, the best wait times (minimal) I have experienced. Yes, most definitely, I would recommend this practice.

My legs each feel much better than before. I am pleased. Dr. Lee was great to talk to, he listens, you can tell he cares. The surgical physician assistant is so sweet, easy to talk to. Everyone I came in contact in Dr. Lee’s office are all very pleasant. Scheduling was very easy, worked well with my crazy schedule. You don’t wait long, everything flows very smoothly. I will be recommending this practice. I have a sister that I know should come in.

Wonderful. I have no varicose veins showing. My legs are clear. No pain – easy with Dr. Lee. The surgical physician assistant was wonderful, I felt she really was interested in me and my results. This made me feel at ease. My experience with the nurse was very nice, and the staff were great and very helpful appointments. I would recommend AVCC to my family and friends!
