Dr. Pittman is a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine. Venous and Lymphatic Medicine is the AMA designated specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of vein disorders. Dr. Pittman is highly trained in the latest vein treatment technology and techniques. There are less than 1000 physicians in the USA who hold this certification.
As a board-certified Vascular and Interventional Radiologist or minimally invasive endovascular surgeon, he is uniquely qualified to treat your vein problems quickly — with little or no discomfort — using no scalpels, incisions or stitches. Many vein care practitioners claim minimally invasive surgery expertise with little or no training. If your vein specialist doctor does not offer ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy, in many cases, your vein problem will not be treated properly or completely.
As a board-certified Diagnostic Radiologist, Dr. Pittman is uniquely qualified to both perform and interpret your ultrasound exam, which is the gold standard for diagnosing vein diseases and also the roadmap for creating your individual and customized vein treatment plan. A poorly performed or interpreted ultrasound exam will lead to less than optimal treatment outcomes. Many physicians seek further training to perform (RVT and RPhS) and interpret (RPVI) vascular ultrasound exams. However, Dr. Pittman is qualified to both perform and interpret medical images by virtue of his training as a Diagnostic Radiologist. Radiologists have the most in depth training and experience in the performance and interpretation of medical images.
