Why Choose a Board Certified Phlebologist (Vein Specialist) to Evaluate and Treat your Spider Veins and Varicose Veins?
Monday, January 23, 2012

There is nothing wrong with having a general surgeon or radiologist to do your vein procedures. However, a dedicated surgeon who is also a phlebologist (vein specialist) brings a whole element of specialty care to the practice of vein disorders. At the Vein Treatment Center, the focus is not just one procedure for all patients, namely 'vein stripping', but rather a variety of procedures that are individualized and targeted to treat specific problems: varicose veins, truncal venous reflux disease, perforator venous reflux disease, vein related skin diseases, treatment of venous stasis ulcers, VNUS Closure, EVLT, topical lasers for spider and reticular veins, SEPS, etc. For a detailed evaluation, call the Vein Treatment Center for a consulation with Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian. Dr. Hratch Karamanoukian is triple board certified - in general surgery (American Board of Surgery), Cardiovascular Surgery (American Board of Thoracic Surgery) and Venous Surgery (American Board of Phlebology). We don't dabble in vein care, but treat it as a medical/surgical specialty. Ask your 'vein doctor' if he is Board Certified in Phlebology!
