1-Day Hands-on Sclerotherapy 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.

Program Description

If you are new to vein care or starting vein practice, this is a course for you. 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 internist elect our courses because sclerotherapy and rest of the vein treatments had not been part of formal fellowship training and recently have evolved especially with the addition of foam sclerotherapy.



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

Sclerotherapy Course 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 sclerotherapy. We also try to group attendees with their peers of same or similar specialty when possible. For example needs of cardiologists are different from vascular medicine and from plastic surgoes. Similarly, needs of internists are very different cardiologists having no exposure to interventional techniques. Each of our course is individually tailored based on 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
