Microphlebectomy to
Remove Varicose Veins


For some visible varicose veins

For some visible varicose veins, we may recommend microphlebectomy. This minimally invasive, in-office procedure takes about an hour and requires little or no down time.

What’s involved?

We start by numbing the skin area on top of the veins. Through a small needle puncture, the vein is located and a small hook pulls it through the skin to remove it. We repeat this process for all problem veins. You may feel a slight pulling sensation during the procedure, but shouldn’t experience any pain. Small punctures heal rapidly without stitches with an excellent cosmetic result.

What are the results?

A microphlebectomy leaves virtually no scars.
