Vein surgery and vein laser should be performed by a diplomate of the American Board of Phlebology, the major body that regulates treatment of vein disorders.

It is best to seek a specialist who has certification from the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.

It is also best to seek a physician who is board certified in general surgery, cardiovascular surgery, vascular surgery, dermatology, plastic surgery ... 

Someone who deals with a large number of vein patients and who has experience in more than one treatment should help you appreciate that not every patient is treated with the same technology.

I have at least three different ablation techniques to treat venous insufficiency - VNUS Closure, EVLT, ClariVein and also chemical ablation. 

Also choose a vein specialist who does microphlebectomy, traditional and foam sclerotherapy, who has experience with surgical treatments for perforator venous disease and has several lasers to treat reticular and spider veins. 

I hope this helps.

Thank you for your question. I recommend you see a Vascular surgeon, and they will do a complete vein analysis if appropriate.  They are the experts in this field. If you have small superficial veins that are cosmetic in nature, you may seek the advice of a board certified dermatologist with expertise in leg vein treatments. I hope this helps.
