Welcome to Vein Specialists Training & Expert Education for the Clinical Phlebology Practitioner
The purpose of Vein Specialists’ advanced physician training in venous disease is to offer the actively practicing phlebologist additional tools needed to optimize their performance and that of their practice. The key to developing a successful and sustaining venous practice includes the use of logical diagnostic and treatment algorithms, expert performance and interpretation of protocol based noninvasive duplex evaluation by registered and experienced vascular sonographers. Education of the individual patient, the general public community and of your potential physician referral base are also the cornerstones of a successful practice and help to build a balanced referral base. Our passion at Vein Specialists is in the education of others regarding venous insufficiency. We believe the current technologies including thermal ablation with radiofrequency (ClosureFAST or LASER) energy and medical adhesive closure (Venaseal) is our best bet in terms of treating patients safely and effectively.
Vein Specialists’ advanced physician training program is an immersion experience for physicians where they can closely observe 10-14 endovenous ablation procedures per day for 1, 2 or 3 days. Physician exposure to microphlebectomy and ultrasound directed foam (Varithena) injection sclerotherapy are also available. Private training sessions allow for more intimate discussions to occur regarding the finer points of the procedures, pearls and other “tricks” we have developed to successfully complete endovenous ablations without having to struggle for access, proper leg position or adequate anesthesia. Vein Specialists offers ethical treatment plans and reserves endovenous ablations for patients with significant signs or symptoms of venous insufficiency in the setting of significant superficial reflux disease. Our interest in training physicians is founded in the goal of ensuring the highest quality of vein care for as many patients who will eventually benefit from endovenous therapies. Thus, Dr. Magnant is willing to train physicians from specialty backgrounds including Vascular surgery, Interventional radiology, invasive cardiology and general surgery with hands on experience in phlebology, who aspire to practice quality venous medicine.
