Start making plans now for the ninth annual International Vein Congress: Endovascular Venous Surgery.

Almeida, M.D., has expanded the program to include content of value to both private and hospital-based practitioners.
Already a powerhouse meeting in the word of in-office venous therapy, IVC will now give attendees even more: expert lectures, educational live cases and intriguing debates to encompass treatments for both superficial and deep disease.

Physicians with years of experience, those who wish to broaden the scope of their existing practices and those who want to consider moving into the venous arena are all invited and encouraged to attend IVC.
“We give you everything you need to know by focusing on clinical advances, providing the lowdown on new products, presenting live cases with expert commentary and sharing tips for running a successful business,” Dr. Almeida says. “Come network with your peers and visit with industry representative in the information-packed exhibit hall.”
