Since the use of Radiofrequency Ablation in 1999 there is a high demand for well-educated trained physicians who specialize in vein treatments. Dr. Mann, a fellowship trained vascular surgeon offers a 3-5 day comprehensive training which includes both didactic and hands-on clinical training – venous duplex imaging, endovenous radiofrequency ablation procedures, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and cosmetic sclerotherapy. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and observe techniques which Dr. Mann has fine tuned over his 25 year career in specializing in vein care.( California licensed physicians will be able to actively participate in procedures performed). With his 3-5-day course Dr. Mann will also give insight on how to successfully open and run a vein care practice. Each training session will be private which will allow the participant to fully immerse themselves in the training. Once the course has been completed the participant will feel confident in performing these procedures.

RVT training: During sonography school many sonographers get very little training on how to properly do a bilateral lower extremity venous duplex exam. Physicians may bring their ultrasound technicians to our office to get hands-on training with our ultrasound tech who has worked closely along with Dr. Mann for many years. Not only will the technician get hands-on experience with venous duplex exams, they will also have the opportunity to assist in both radio frequency ablation procedures and ultrasound guided sclerotherapy.
Independent sonographers who are looking into continuing their medical education also have the opportunity to come to our clinic and learn to map the lower extremity veins. In addition, learn how to assist a vascular surgeon in multiple types of procedures such as radio frequency ablations, ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and visual sclerotherapy.
