14TH INTERNATIONAL MASTER COURSE IN PHLEBOLOGY, Riga (Latvia), June 17-18, 2016
Dear colleagues and friends!
On behalf of the Baltic Society of Phlebology I have the honour to invite you to Riga to the 14th International Master Course of Phlebology. The event will thematically focus on the current endovascular and transdermal techniques in the treatment of venous diseases. During the workshop we will focus on a combination of different non-invasive technologies and methods, covering various hot topics from endovenous ablation of saphenous veins and their superficial tributaries to transdermal laser ablation of skin veins, to achieve the best possible functional and aesthetic results.
We are delighted to welcome here Dr. Lowell S. Kabnick, MD, RPhS, FACS, FACPh (USA). He is an internationally recognized vascular surgeon and teacher who provides a patient-centered approach to vein care. His method enables the creation and improvement of many of today’s most advanced non-invasive vascular surgery techniques. After FDA approval, Dr. Kabnick was the first vascular surgeon in the United States to perform both the radiofrequency ablation and the endovenous laser procedures. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons as well as the American College of Phlebology. He considers himself fortunate to be recognized by his peers who have elected him to a leadership position, President, in The American Venous Forum. In 2007 he joined the faculty of the New York University Langone Medical Center, Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery as Director of the NYU Vein Center. Each participant of this event will have the unique opportunity to learn from Dr. Kabnick.
This will provide the participants with an opportunity to learn about the most accurate and up-to-date techniques in the transdermal and endovascular therapies of venous diseases from the world’s leading physicians specializing in varicose vein care.
The two-day workshop will focus on the latest techniques: foam sclerotherapy, transdermal and endovascular ablation, as well as provide “tips and tricks” for treating vein problems successfully. The emphasis will be put on learning efficiency by forming smaller groups of participants to ensure more opportunities for questions and discussions.
I am looking forward to seeing you all during the 14th International Master Course in Phlebology and welcoming you in Riga.
Prof. Dr. Uldis Maurins, MD
President of the Baltic Society of Phlebology
