1-Day Hands-on Phlebectomy Course


This two day Endovenous Ablation Course is a good mix of didactic and hands-on learning. The focus is to train attendees in such a way that they feel comfortable with treatments.


Our courses have a small group of 5-10 attendees format. We feel it gives attendees individual attention and we can cater individual needs to course attendees.


Our dedication to our trainees doesn’t end after completion of course. We are available to help them in person and using veinandwoundforum.com to ask any question.


We provide comprehensive vein training. Please see complete list our vein courses

Program Description

Phlebectomy Course is a one day course aimed at physicians and physician assistants. If you are new to vein care or starting vein treatments, this course is a must. All our courses are formatted in such a way that, we will take course attendees from basics of relevant anatomy, physiology, pathology, diagnostics and finally treating.

Many of cardiologists, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons and internists elect our courses because phlebectomy and many of the vein treatments had not been part of formal fellowship training and they have never performed or assisted this treatment.


Cardiologists, vascular medicine trained physicians, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, dermatologists, internal medicine physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners who are part of phlebology practice, plan to be in such practice or considering to start phlebology practice physicians.

Residents or fellows who are interested in phlebology and vein treatments.

Phlebectomy Program Details

Our course programs are designed very carefully and thoughtfully. Most of the times we will ask our registrants their basic knowledge and skills in phlebology and endovenous treatments. We also try to group attendees with their peers of same or similar specialty if we can. For example needs of cardiologists are different from even vascular medicine and from plastic surgeons and very different from internists. Each of our course is individually tailored based attendees and their baseline skill sets.


  1. Small group practical didactic lectures
  2. Emphasis on hands-on training
  3. Ongoing support to make attendees successful in treatments by providing the online forum for discussion among the attendees and faculty and expert answers by faculty
  4. Optional on site proctorship by our faculty to get you started
