"The carotid endovascular course headed up by Dr. Chris Metzger at Wellmont CVA Heart Institute is by far the best hands on training course I have attended in the United States to date. I would recommend it wholeheartedly. I now have a greater insight into appropriate case selection, anatomical challenges, strategy and device selection. This course offers superior training in performing carotid intervention to an excellent standard."
