Dr. Bush to present work at Sclerotherapy 2014

Sclerotherapy 2014 will be held March 28-29 at the Hotel Sheraton in Firenze, Italy. This year, the conference will also host this year’s national convention of AFI, the Italian Pthlebological Association. There will be simultaneous translation in English, Italian and Spanish. Ron Bush, MD, FACS, will present some original work he has done combining different modalities for the treatment of telangiectasias. “I find ‘Sclerotherapy 2014,’ chaired by Allesandro Frullini, MD, to be an exceptionally good conference in that new ideas and techniques are discussed and some of these are not available as of yet, in the United States,” Dr. Bush said. “The site of the conference is resplendent with beauty and history.” VTN
