What is a vein doctor called?
A vein doctor is called a vascular specialist or a vascular surgeon.
The vascular system (or circulatory system) is comprised of all vessels that carry blood and lymph throughout the body. Simply put, the arteries (the arterial system) carry oxygenated blood from the heart to the other organs, while the veins (the venous system) carry deoxygenated blood back to the heart. The only veins that carry oxygenated blood are those in the pulmonary system, which carries blood to the lungs to be oxygenated before moving the blood to the rest of the body. The lymph vessels (the lymphatic system) carry lymphatic fluid throughout the body and plays a key role in the immune system.
What do vein doctors treat?
Vein doctors (vascular specialists or vascular surgeons) specialize in the vascular system. The vascular system is complex and essential to our health and wellbeing and issues or conditions with our veins can range from uncomfortable to life-threatening. Vein doctors can treat these broad ranges of problems, from simple, cosmetic issues like spider veins and some varicose veins, to potentially fatal issues, like aneurisms or pulmonary embolisms.
At the Colorado Laser & Vein Center, the top-rated vein clinic in the greater Denver metro area, the talented and experienced team of specialists can diagnose and treat:
- Varicose veins: twisted, enlarged, rope-like veins that are most commonly found in the legs and ankles and are caused by malfunctioning valves in the veins that cause blood to pool and collect
- Spider veins: harmless, small, twisted blood vessels that appear just under the skin in a spiderweb pattern
- Restless Leg Syndrome: a nervous disorder that causes the uncomfortable tingling or creeping feeling the legs leading to an irresistible urge to move them and is related to venous insufficiency (such as varicose veins)
- Edema or leg swelling: a common symptom of congestive heart failure, lymphedema, as well as venous disease
- Venous Stasis Dermatitis: an advanced stage of venous disease signaled by high pressure in the veins of the feet, legs, and calves and may lead to venous ulcers if not treated
- Venous ulcers: a painful, slow-healing ulcer caused by the breaking down of the tissue due to damaged valves and pooling blood in the veins
- Lymphedema, a blockage in the lymphatic system causing swelling in the legs, arms, chest, or head
- Superficial Venous Thrombosis (SVT): a blood clot that forms in the superficial veins (the veins close to the surface of the body), which can be caused by slow-moving blood through varicose veins
- Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): a blood clot that forms in the deep veins (the veins in the muscles that run along the bones) and is a serious issue. If the blood clot travels to your lungs, it will result in a pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal.
How do I choose a good vein doctor?
Your veins are essential to your health, and as such, it is important for you to receive quality care from an experienced doctor you trust. It may be overwhelming when searching for a vein clinic and vascular surgeon, but to make the process easier, keep the following in mind:
- Certification and experience are key. Always look for a doctor who is board certified and who specializes in vascular surgery. You want to be sure that this physician has experience treating your specific condition and consistently performs treatments for it and other vein issues.
- Look for a clinic that offers advanced, modern equipment for diagnosis and treatment. Accurate diagnosis is imperative to proper care; vein care is continually advancing, and many current treatments are much more comfortable than the traditional, vein stripping options. If a clinic offers modern treatments, then this is a sign the physician studies the advances in technology and treatment and is constantly learning and improving.
- You can interview doctors. You should find a doctor who listens to your concerns, answers your questions, and offers you a comprehensive and thorough treatment plan. By far, feeling comfortable and confident in your care is most important.
- You can ask for referrals and recommendations. You can look online for clinic reviews and talk to your friends and family about their experiences and ask them for any advice and recommendations for care in your area. Don’t forget to approach your primary care physician as well, if you haven’t already. Your primary care physician is a fantastic resource for information and referrals.
- Check your insurance options. Many vein treatments are covered by various insurance plans, but each plan is different. and costs can vary drastically. Always check with the clinic to make sure they accept your insurance and call your insurance provider to see what your plan covers, what your options are, and what your deductible is so that there are no unpleasant surprises.
Your health is non-negotiable, and it is imperative that you find a doctor who you are comfortable with and can provide you with the treatment you need.
