Phlebolgy is that medical speciality devoted to the management of venous disorders.
Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) occurs either due to reflux, obstruction or a combination of both.
A Phlebologist is a medical specialist in the diagnosis and treatment of
disorders of venous origin. This must be distinguished from vascular surgeons, who deal with
the vascular system, both arteries and veins.
There are several Phlebology Societies that are associations for ‘vein-care’
professionals. these include physicians (general and vascular surgeons), interventional
radiologists, cardiologists, registered practicing nurses etc.
