Vein Center Houston receives Vein Center accreditation by the IAC

More than one half of Americans age 50 and older are affected by varicose veins. Varicose veins occur when the valves in the leg veins no longer function, causing blood to pool in the legs. In some cases, this condition progresses to a more serious form of venous disease called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).
Whether to relieve symptoms and/or improve appearance, treating varicose veins can be performed by vein centers that specialize in the evaluation and management of superficial venous disorders. There are many facets that contribute to a positive patient outcome; successful treatment of the venous disorder, the training and experience of the vein specialist performing the procedure, the type of equipment used and the quality assessment metrics each facility is required to measure.

Vein Center Houston located in Houston, TX has been granted accreditation in Superficial Venous Treatment and Management by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

Accreditation by the IAC means that Vein Center Houston has voluntarily undergone a thorough review of its operational and technical components by a panel of experts. The IAC grants accreditation only to those facilities that are found to be providing quality patient care, in compliance with national standards through a comprehensive application process including a detailed review of selected patient procedures.
IAC accreditation is a “seal of approval” that patients can rely on as an indication that the vein center’s processes and procedures have been carefully evaluated by medical experts in the field of treatment and management of superficial venous disorders. When scheduling a vein center procedure, patients are encouraged to inquire as to the accreditation status of the facility where their treatment and management will be performed and can learn more by visiting

IAC accreditation is widely respected within the medical community, as illustrated by the support of the national medical societies related to superficial venous disorders, which include physicians, physician extenders, nurses and ultrasound technologists.

The American College of Radiology (ACR) periodically validates compliance with accreditation requirements at applicant imaging facilities.

On 02/05/2020, an American College of radiology (ACR) surveyor conducted a Validation On-Site survey at your facility. The ACR understands that an on-site survey may be disruptive to your facility so we attempt to review only that which is necessary. The ACR conducts validation site surveys of accredited facilities to monitor compliance with accreditation standards. in addition, the ACR uses this mechanism to provide assistance to your staff in areas where the facility may need help. In order to remain in good standing with the ACR Accreditation programs, facilities must demonstrate their compliance with the appropriate accreditation requirements as relates to appropriate documentation of accreditation requirements, including a quality control program.

The ACR is pleased to inform you that your accredited facility is in compliance with the standards of the ACR Accreditation Programs and remains in good standing. Congratulations for maintaining the high level of quality expected of all ACR-accredited facilities. While no further action is required at this tie, ACR expects that you will continue to maintain this level of quality throughout your accreditation.
