Frequently Asked Questions

What is the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine?

The American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM) sets a high standard for physicians who diagnose and treat venous and lymphatic disorders, including varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, and venous leg ulcers. Established in 2007, the ABVLM’s core mission is to improve the standards of vein care practitioners. When vein care is held to a high standard, patients can receive the excellent care they deserve. Many vein care practitioners still hold a medical license, which proves that they meet the minimal competency requirements for diagnosing and treating patients. However, board certification proves that a physician has specialized in the field and possesses superior knowledge, experience, and expertise.

How Does a Physician Become Board Certified?

Physicians who apply for board certification must go above and beyond the minimal requirements for practicing vein care. ABVLM, for example, requires physicians to have completed all requisite training or experience requirements, while keeping up with current vein care research and passing a certification exam. This examination is currently the most comprehensive test of vein disease knowledge available. Physicians who have met these rigorous requirements can confidently say that they know and understand how to handle a patient’s venous care.
