What type of doctor will treat my varicose veins?

A Answers (2)

  • Your general doctor may diagnose and give you recommendations for treating your varicose veins. However, if you are seeing surgery, you may need to see a vascular doctor or surgeon. These physicians have specialized training in the circulatory system. You may also see a dermatologist, or skin doctor.

    A cardiologist who has been trained in the treatment of peripheral vascular disease can treat your varicose veins. Dermatologists can treat the cosmetic concerns, but this is not treating the underlying problem.
