Dr. Fonger attends International Vein Congress (IVC) meeting - April - Miami, Florida

Posted on May 04, 2017

Dr. Fonger had the pleasure of attending the IVC meeting this year in Miami. This annual conference is held to update vein therapy practitioners in the U.S. on the latest techniques and therapies that are emerging in the field. There are invited lectures from various leaders on the full range of topics that may be relevant to both standard and advanced vein care. It purposely is not meant to be a Society meeting with deep academic research or esoteric discussions. Instead, the meeting features live surgery, technical videos, and panels for discussion of emerging topics.

This year, the hot topics included new therapies for superficial vein closure without having to inject tumescent anesthesia by injecting glue to close the veins (VenaSeal) or mechanically irritating the lining of the vein to cause it to shut down (ClariVein). These techniques are now available in the U.S. but have an additional cost during this period of establishing their insurance codes. There was also considerable talk about collecting patient reported outcomes to document the benefit from the treatments being offered. The vein therapy field continues to mature with formal certifications for vein centers now being offered and more emphasis of practitioner training and Board examination.

VEINatlanta continues to monitor and adopt these latest techniques and therapies to assure that we offer state of the art venous care to our patients.

Dr. Prevosti rubs shoulders with Atlanta elite athletes at fundraiser for CHOA

Posted on December 01, 2016

In November, the Zegna men's store in Lenox Square hosted a fund raiser for Children's Healthcare Of Atlanta. In attendance were Matt Ryan, quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons and NFL MVP contender, and Freddie Freeman, first baseman for the Atlanta Braves. The event was quite a success, raising thousands of dollars for children's healthcare. Dr. Prevosti got to visit with both athletes.

"I was so impressed with both athletes. Their humble attitude, friendly personality, towering stature, and deep commitment to CHOA was profound. These are amazing young men both in spirit and personality.

Thank you Sigvaris, for allowing us to be a part of your event. Delta General Offices and Emerson Climate Technologies also invited us to be a part of their employee event last Thursday and Friday.
