What is Microphlebectomy?
Microphlebectomy, is a minimally invasive method of treating small varicose veins. A special hook is used to remove the vein through multiple tiny openings that do not usually require stitches and leave little scarring. Recent advances have made it possible to perform the procedure using only local anesthesia.
The process is completed in an outpatient setting with local anesthesia. The varicose veins to be removed are marked and subsequently removed through 1-2-mm puncture holes in the skin. The edges of the hole are approximated in special method make healing almost scarless.
We use Phlebectomy to remove varicose veins that are not removable by sclerotherapy or laser.
Patients can walk after the procedure, and may resume normal function immediately.
