SCLEROTHERAPY TRAINING

Course Description
This comprehensive one-day program provides participants with certification in Sclerotherapy. The morning session includes a didactic portion, where the participants will learn the different injection techniques for Sclerotherapy. The afternoon session consists of extensive hands-on training used to cement the didactic portion of the course, so that participants leave with a comprehensive understanding of these procedures. This allows the participants to implement Sclerotherapy into their practice as soon as they feel comfortable.
