Advanced Vein Care of Altoona, Central Pa’s premier vein care specialists, has earned a three-year reaccreditation from the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) as a certified Vein Center for the treatment and management of superficial venous conditions.
Advanced Vein Care is locally owned and independently operated in Duncansville by board-certified general surgeon and vein surgeon David C. Faber, MD, FACS, and is the region’s most comprehensive varicose and spider vein treatment program, providing radiofrequency and laser catheter-based ablation, sclerotherapy, ambulatory microphlebectomy, compression stockings, and peripheral venous testing.
“Our patients can take comfort in knowing that we hold ourselves to the highest standards and regulations set forth by the IAC,” said Dr. Faber. “This certification is proof that everyone at Advanced Vein Care is committed to providing exceptional care and amazing results to each and every patient, each and every day.”
The certification once again positions Advanced Vein Care as the only IAC-accredited vein clinic between the Pittsburgh and Harrisburg regions. The Duncansville practice also holds IAC-accreditation in vascular testing, making it the state’s only varicose veins clinic west of Harrisburg to be dually accredited as a vein clinic and in vascular testing.
Accreditation by the IAC means the Advanced Vein Care has undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts and provides a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the facility has been carefully critiqued on all aspects of its operations by medical experts. IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to venous disorders, which include physicians, physician extenders, nurses and ultrasound technologists.
Located at 723 Broad Street in Duncansville, Advanced Vein Care of Altoona offers the region’s only free, no-obligation online assessment for varicose veins, accessible through the clinic’s website at www.altoonavein.com.
