Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy, also known as ambulatory phlebectomy, removes varicose veins in the leg without surgery. Veins are flexible and collapse easily; even some large veins suffering from conditions can be removed through small nicks. Not long ago, surgery was the only reliable option, but now, many minimally invasive procedures can be more effective than surgery for treating varicose veins.

Microphlebectomy can offer symptomatic relief and help make patients feel more comfortable with the appearance of their legs.
