HANDS ON VEINS (Dominican Republic)
This 3-day course is designed to teach the essentials of superficial venous disease. Since 2005,
we have trained over 300 physicians from the US, Europe and Latin America. It is designed so you
can learn the techniques necessary to care for patients with venous disease.
This intense course includes 3 full days of treatments with lecture during breakfast and lunch.
What makes this course unique is the close personal attention you get with attendee to faculty
ratio of two to one.
It takes place at the Clinica Canela in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Our accommodations will
be at the beautiful resort of Casa de Campo. During our stay we will be caring for hundreds of
patients with venous disease. Most of these patients are unable to pay for these procedures and
receive treatment at no cost.
The center has a large volume of patients with venous disease ranging from CEAP 1 to CEAP
6. Procedures include ultrasound, phlebectomy, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and cosmetic
Who should attend? Physicians, RN’s, NP’s, PA’s, and Ultrasound Technicians

The Dominican Republican experience elevated our skills/practice. The trip was a 10 out of 10.
I was able to improve my current skills and then add phlebectomy and ultrasound
sclerotherapy into my practice. The hospitality of the trip leaders was spot on!
