    You may have heard that if you are dealing with venous insufficiency you will need to consult with a Vein Specialist – but what exactly is a Vein Specialist? What kind of training have they had? and most importantly, are all Vein Specialists created equal?

    While there are now several routes to becoming a “Certified Vein Specialist” if you want your health entrusted to the best, choose a doctor, such as Vein Specialists very own Dr. Joseph Magnant, who is a Vascular Surgeon with over 26 years of experience. They are the only specialists who have focused their practice solely to vascular disease.

    True excellence comes from experience and this proficiency develops from treating damaged veins day after day, year after year, one patient, one case at a time.

    The only credentialing body for the treatment of veins in the office setting is the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission or the IAC. Vein Specialists www.weknowveins.com holds the IAC seal as it is displayed right on the website itself.

    The IAC is made up of representatives from 9 medical societies including:

    • Society for Vascular Surgery
    • Society for Clinical Vascular Surgery
    • American College of Surgeons
    • American Venous Forum
    • American Academy of Dermatology
    • American College of Phlebology
    • Society for Vascular Ultrasound
    • Society for Vascular Medicine
    • Society of Interventional Radiology

    These societies have joined forces to stop the dangerous practice of treating veins by unqualified doctors thereby establishing national standards of patient safety.


    For your own protection and peace of mind, please only choose a vein doctor with this national certification. There are many “med spas” that pop up around the country and tend to be fly by night operations. Though, yes they are actual doctors who run them, they are not specialists in the true nature of the word and may have only taken a weekend class certification in venous issues.  It takes years to master the art. You do not want to be someone’s practice piece.
