St Johns Vein Center Receives Vein Center AccreditationFriday, December 16th, 2016 Blog
We have exciting news! We have received an IAC Vein Center accreditation.
More than one half of Americans age 50 and older are affected by varicose veins. Varicose veins occur when the valves in the leg veins no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs. In some cases, this condition progresses to a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).
Whether to relieve symptoms and/or improve appearances, treating varicose veins can be performed by vein centers that specialize in the evaluation and management of superficial venous disorders. There are many facets that contribute to a positive patient outcome; successful treatment of the venous disorder, the training and experience of the vein required to measure.
St Johns Vein Center located in Jacksonville, FL has been granted accreditation in Superficial Venous Evaluation and Management by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).
