What is Phlebology
Phlebology is a medical discipline that involves the diagnosis and treatment of venous and lymphatic disorders, including spider veins, varicose veins, chronic venous insufficiency, venous leg ulcers, congenital venous abnormalities, venous thromboembolism and other disorders of venous and lymphatic origin.
Our Medical Director, Dr. Jozef Tryzno, is a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine (formerly known as the American Board of Phlebology) and holds Registered Vascular Technologist credentials from the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers. With his help, the varicose vein treatment that you need is within reach.
- Diplomates of the ABVLM have to prove their proficiency in the use of ultrasound equipment to diagnose and treat veins of the lower extremities. Those physicians voluntarily took this rigorous exam to set themselves apart from all other doctors doing vein treatments.
Dr Tryzno's certification with the ABVLM is a direct reflection of his skill for providing quality patient care, and his commitment to the advancement of vein care as a field.
Instead of looking for a specialist after you have developed complications, schedule your appointment with a provider who holds certification form the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.
You have only two legs that you need to rely on for a long time! Get it right the first time around. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Jozef Tryzno, MD.
