What's the Difference Between an IAC Accredited Vein Center and Having an IAC Accreditation in Vascular Testing?

When considering where to seek evaluation and treatment for varicose and spider veins, physician experience, and background are what ensure appropriate treatment and best long-term results.

At Albert Vein Institute, we represent Colorado’s only IAC (Intersocietal Accreditation Commission) Accredited “Vein Center”, with convenient locations in both Lone Tree and Colorado Springs. What exactly does this accreditation mean for our patients? Keep reading to learn more.

Choosing the Right Vein Specialist

In healthcare, larger is not always better. Making sure your provider has had advanced microsurgical training and extensive venous experience is critical to obtaining good results. Your treatment plan and potential procedures may be determined and performed by less experienced individuals. This could be the difference between good and great results, or could even be detrimental to your vein care.

Some business-oriented “chain vein” facilities promote their extensive number of facilities or business awards, claiming that they have an IAC accreditation in vascular testing. Passing the board exam in Phlebology and Lymphatic Medicine is an academic achievement but declares nothing about procedural expertise. Put yourself first by doing your own research. It will help you to make the correct choice when looking for minimally invasive vein care.

The Importance of Vein Center Accreditation

The difference? The IAC Accreditation in Vascular Testing means that AVI has the seal of approval from a reputable overseeing healthcare body for Ultrasound Interpretation and Testing. In order to receive the “highest distinction” as an IAC Accredited Vein Center, it is required for a vein clinic to also have the IAC Accreditation in Vascular Testing.

The Vascular Testing Accreditation is just one of many benchmarks of competence that an IAC Accredited Vein Center has achieved in its care and expertise. The achievement of Albert Vein Institute is among an elite group of about 100 IAC Accredited Vein Centers across the country and the first and only one of its kind in Colorado.
