Microphlebectomy: A Successful Solution for Varicose Veins
Microphlebectomy is a procedure that involves removal of the varicose veins through tiny surgical incisions. This is the recommended treatment for large superficial varicose veins. Due to their size and location, these veins cannot be effectively treated with sclerotherapy and are superficial to the skin to treat with ablation.
What Are the Benefits of Microphlebectomy?
Removal of the veins with microphlebectomy results in quicker healing, less pain, and a better cosmetic result than would occur without this treatment.
- Minimally invasive
- Usually only requires local anesthesia to numb the skin over the vein
- Little or no down time
- Usual daily activities resumed immediately following the procedure
How Does Microphlebectomy Work?
With microphlebectomy, varicose veins are removed through small incision, which leave virtually no scars. Microphlebectomy can also be used as an adjunctive therapy in addition to ablation or ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, if a portion of the varicose vein’s course goes deeper under the skin’s surface. With microphlebectomy, patients wear compression dressing usually for 1-2 week followings the procedure. One of our specialists at Precision VIR will advise you on the microphlebectomy process.
