Developed in the 1960s by a Switzerland physician, Microphlebectomy (also known as Ambulatory Phlebectomy) is an advanced and minimally invasive method of eliminating varicose veins. Performed under local anesthesia in the comfort of our office, using a specifically design instrument, the veins are gently removed through tiny skin openings about the size of a pencil point. Unlike vein stripping, virtually no visible scarring occurs with Microphlebectomy.

Microphlebectomy is an effective method of treating large bulging varicose veins. The benefits of Microphlebectomy are quite numerous and include:

  1. In-office, quick and simple procedure
  2. Local anesthesia is used
  3. Minimally invasive
  4. Return to normal activity with little to no down time
  5. Excellent results

What should I expect during treatment?

Microphlebectomy is a procedure that removes large surface varicosities (varicose veins) through a small incision the size of a pencil point.

A Phlebectomy hook is inserted through skin incisions or needle punctures often as small as 1mm in size. A section of the affected vein is hooked and then is gently removed through the incision.

How many treatments should I need?

Because the affected veins are removed, Microphlebectomy treatments often eliminate the target veins in just one treatment. In some cases, additional therapy may be necessary to provide you with expected results. Your physician will discuss any follow-up treatment recommended.
