Phlebology is the medical specialty that is dedicated specifically to venous disease (This includes varicose and spider veins). This specialty focuses on vein treatment and has its own society (The American College of Phlebology). The American Board of Phlebology offers physicians certification in the specialty of phlebology. Certification demonstrates that physicians have met rigorous standards of education, experience, and evaluation. In order to become a certified phlebologist the physician candidate must:

Complete the requisite training or experience qualifications

Meet the continuing medical education requisites

Pass a certification examination

Dr. Sussman is one of only 520 physicians to date to be certified by the American Board of Phlebology. Before committing to a venous training experience, it is worth researching if the individual offering the training is a physician and is certified by the American Board of Phlebology. Physicians offering training in venous disease should be able to address all your questions. For the past several years Dr. Sussman has devoted her practice of medicine exclusively to phlebology and has successfully and safely treated hundreds of patients.
