Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy, or ambulatory phlebectomy, is a minimally invasive surgical technique to remove varicose veins. This procedure is ideal for treating large, bulging veins that are close to the skin's surface. It is a minimally invasive surgery requiring only tiny incisions.

Procedure

Consultation: A thorough evaluation of the veins is conducted to determine the suitability of microphlebectomy.

Procedure: Sometimes performed at the hospital’s surgical suite. Under local anesthesia, this technique involves making tiny skin incisions in the affected area.

 

The instruments are placed into the incisions and are guided by ultrasonography as they pass through the veins' structures. The surgeon uses the instruments to grasp the afflicted varicose veins and draw them to the skin's surface by a hook.

 

A little bandage is placed over the incision area, and pressure is applied to clot it while the veins are carefully removed from the skin through these incisions. The incisions are so small that sutures are often unnecessary.

Recovery: Patients typically return to normal activities soon after the procedure, with minimal downtime.
