What are Vein Specialists?
A vein specialist is a physician that has dedicated his or her entire career to the management of venous diseases. All vein doctors are not created equal. In order to be considered a true vein specialist, a physician must first complete medical school and then go onto a residency and fellowship that focuses on vein disease management.
The residency and fellowship focuses on vascular and vein diseases and is referred to as a vascular surgery residency and fellowship. Once the physician completes the fellowship then they are referred to as a vascular surgeon, which is the highest level of vein training. A vascular surgeon has typically completed over one thousand vascular procedures by the time they complete their training process. In order to demonstrate their competency following the fellowship, the vascular surgeon gets board-certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS) and then becomes a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS designation). Once obtaining this title of a board-certified Vascular Surgeon, the doctor can then also go on to achieve additional training through the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine (ABVLM). If they complete this additional certification in phlebology, then they become a diplomate of the ABVLM. Our Cedar Park vein specialists are experts in vein disease management, having completed a residency and fellowship in vascular surgery and being board-certified through the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine. Dr. Gotvald is a board-certified vascular surgeons and a phlebologist.

Our physicians may recommend that some treatments be performed in a surgery center, especially for more severe forms of varicose vein disease.
