Vein Health Awareness
Venous disease and varicose veins just gained more notoriety today. For years the concept of vein health was thrown on the backburner, but as more people actively seek out treatment for their ropy unattractive and problematic veins, the industry makes strides in funding and awareness. The VNUS Medical Technologies Inc group gave Mercer University and doctors a number of ClosureFAST Catheters with hopes of adding better equipment and resources to treat venous disease issues.
Dr. Sinjae Hyun the associate professor of biomedical engineering at Mercer said,
“We're very happy to have received this gift. It gave my students a great hands-on learning opportunity and a chance to work on true biomedical engineering project. In addition, it has helped Dr. Harper and I to advance our research in varicose vein treatment."
Hopefully such awareness and advances in the field will provide and boost the industry financially, academically and medically.
