Vein Center: Quality information regarding sclerotherapy can be found through a dedicated, experienced vein center, where a full exam can be performed to determine exactly what your particular vein issues are, and what the most appropriate treatment would be. There are multiple web sites dedicated to vein specialties, such as am coll of phlebology at www.Phlebology.Org, veindirectory.Com, veinexperts.Org ..Etc.

Many websites: You are right to want to get recommendations about where to get reliable information. Not everything you read on the web is necessarily accurate. One good source of unbiased information about all vein treatment comes from the american college of phlebology. Their information website (http://www.Healthyveins.Org) is a good place to get information.

See Vein Specialists: Best place to get info in from a board-certified vein specialist who has dedicated their career to treat vein diseases & who performs sclerotherapy on a regular or daily basis. Although much information can be found online, the quality & accuracy of the information varies tremendously.
