Course Director
The Annual Vascular Fellows Course In Venous Disease
May 6, 7 & 8

Press Release Body: Englewood, NJ (April 15, 2008) -- The Third Annual Vascular
Fellows Course in Venous Disease will be held May 6- 8th at the Center for Vein
Disease at Englewood Hospital. Steven Elias, MD, the Director of the Center will
host the event. The Vascular Fellows Course in Venous Disease will bring together
over 30 vascular surgeons-in-training from all over the country representing some of
the nation's most prestigious teaching facilities including Baylor Medical Center,
The Cleveland Clinic, and New York University. The fellows will be guided by an
internationally recognized faculty. Among those in attendance will be Thomas
O\'Donnell, MD of Tufts Medical Center; William Marston, MD of the University of
North Carolina; Ruth Bush, MD of Texas A&M University; Mark Meissner, MD of
Harborview Medical Center in Seattle; and Marc Passman, MD of Vanderbilt University
in Nashville.
\"The focus of the course is to address the needs of surgeons as they complete their
vascular subspecialty training and enter the \'real\' vascular world,\" said Elias.
\"Fellows will come away with a global view of venous disease and will learn the
most advanced and minimally invasive techniques for vein disease," he concluded.
Most programs teach traditional and invasive methods, but the Center for Vein
Disease at Englewood Hospital is well known for its use of cutting edge techniques
that attract vascular surgeons from all over the country. Each course has had a
waiting list due in part to the Center's innovative approach to treating vein
disease and the vascular surgeons' thirst for this valuable information to respond
to a patient's desire for less invasive treatment options.
Two course venues are available in 2008: May 6-8 at Englewood Hospital, Englewood,
New Jersey and September 16-18 at the Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio. Please send
a note of interest to vascularfellows@yahoo.com to learn more.

The course is endorsed by the Association of Program Directors in Vascular Surgery
and American Venous Forum.
