Vein Care Preceptorship Day

Instructor: Kenneth Harper, MD, FACS, RPVI, PRhS

This intensive immersion in a dedicated phlebology practice is an introduction to comprehensive vein care for varicose vein disease. It is offered in conjunction with the cosmetic sclerotherapy class or as an independent preceptorship.

The clinical immersion includes observation of:

  • New patient consultations

  • Development of treatment plans based on clinical findings
  • Pre-procedure preparation: consenting, marking, tumescent anesthesia, prep and draping
  • Intra-procedure: Endovenous procedures (ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, RF Closure, Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy) and ambulatory phlebectomy (depending on case availability)
  • Post procedure visits and ultrasounds

During the preceptorship day you have the opportunity to meet the VSS practice manager who is available for business questions associated with the development of a phlebology practice. For two day participants Dr. Harper and staff host a dinner, which is an excellent opportunity for further questions concerning the day’s activities.
