Dr Asha Ram attending World Congress of Phlebology (the treatment of Veins)


Dr Asha recently attended a 5-day Phlebology conference in Melbourne on the treatment of veins. The UIP World Congress of Phlebology was held for 5 days, from the 4th to the 8th of February.

Sanctum + Veins

The treatment of veins, such as spider veins and varicose veins, is nothing new to Sanctum.

Key conference messages

Key take home messages from the conference were that treating vein disease is important for cosmetic, lifestyle and optimal functional outcomes and that complications from not treating abnormal veins can result in very significant disease and poor quality of life.

New treatments focus on providing safe comfortable treatment with lasting results at a manageable cost.

Venous disease often runs in families and can progress throughout one’s lifetime. This means repeat treatments is part of managing this condition.
