About Us

The AVLS is the leading resource for vein care physicians, health professionals, and patients.



The AVLS works closely with members and venous disease specialists across the world to advance the field of vein and lymphatic care, within the medical community and the general public. One way we accomplish this mission, is through the help of the volunteers who sit on our committees. If you’re interested in volunteer opportunities, explore our committees to see if there’s a particular area you’d like to focus your time and talents on.
