Q: Who Should Perform Sclerotherapy – Dermatologist, Plastic Surgeon, Vein Clinic?
Who is the best choice for sclerotherapy or any other type of vein removal…one of the “Vein Clinics,” a dermatologist, or plastic surgeon?
Dr. Sabrina Fabi’s Expert Answer
Sclerotherapy is part of the core curriculum for Dermatologists, and therefore most are trained and tested on their board exams regarding the treatment. I cannot comment on whether the same holds true for plastic surgeons and the doctors of a “vein clinic” as any doctor can run a vein clinic. Therefore, you may consider asking what their credentials are. Some are run by vascular surgeons who specialize in veins, and this may serve as a good alternative. Good luck.
