For Phillip Moore, MD, lifelong learning is an integral part of his dedication to providing superior patient care. A vascular surgeon at Salem Skin and Vein Specialists, a leading vein treatment center in Winston-Salem, NC, Dr. Moore recently attended the 25th anniversary meeting of the American Venous Forum, and learned some of the latest advancements in vein care.
The meeting, held in Phoenix, Arizona, is one of the premier conferences for vein specialists. Vein experts from around the country and the world gathered to discuss the latest research findings and clinical advancements. Dr. Moore attended lectures on a variety of topics in venous disease, including a particularly informative talk on pelvic venous congestion. The vein surgeon also heard about the newest improvements in varicose vein and spider vein treatment, and returned to his Winston-Salem vein center with advanced knowledge he can put directly into practice to improve patient outcomes.
“Based on the information presented during the meeting, I will be making several small changes in the way I treat superficial vein disease,” said Dr. Moore. “For example, small modifications to our procedure for venous ablation of the greater saphenous vein should help reduce the risk of DVT after the procedure.”
Dr. Moore found the conference to be highly valuable and says he will be in attendance again next year as a newly inducted member in the elite society.
