Its initiators and organisers are Ints Ūdris, surgeon, phlebologist, vascular surgeon, leading specialist of SIA Veselības centrs 4 branch Baltic Vein Clinic, and his colleagues Dr. Ulf Thorsten Zierau from Berlin and Dr. Carl Henrik Schelp from Malmo.
The forum has gathered the leading European professionals in the field, who will share their experience and the newest achievements in treatment of leg veins.
Dr. Ints Ūdris introduced the colleagues with the results of his work on vein closing by using “VenaSeal™ Closure System” technology. It must be mentioned that Dr. Ints Ūdris has received the prize of “Sepheon” company for conducted surgical operations by using this innovative bioadhesive technology and outstanding results reached. Currently, Dr. Ūdris is testing the method that allows for much more gentle elimination of lateral vein branches than mini-phlebectomy, by closing them with an especially thin laser wire. It is expected that this method will be much more widely used in future.
Baltijas Vēnu klīnika branch was represented at the Forum by its manager Zane Rēvalde as well. She was invited to present the successful management model of the vein clinic, considering the fact that Baltijas Vēnu klīnika has earned recognition not only in Latvia and the Baltic States, but elsewhere in Europe as well. The manager of the clinic shared her experience on the marketing strategy of Baltijas Vēnu klīnika and attractive solutions used in patient communication, in comparison with other clinics of similar profile in Latvia.
We are proud of the international reputation and authority of our clinic and Dr. Ūdris!
The second Northern European Endovenous Forum will take place in Riga.
