What is Microphlebectomy?

Microphlebectomy, is a procedure used to remove varicose veins. Varicose veins are twisted, bulging veins that appear just below the skin's surface. They occur due to faulty valves within the veins, causing blood to pool instead of flowing properly.

During microphlebectomy, a vein specialist makes tiny incisions in the skin above the varicose vein. A special hook is then inserted to remove the vein section by section. Local anesthesia numbs the area, minimizing discomfort. Microphlebectomy is often performed in conjunction with other procedures like endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) to address the underlying cause of varicose veins.
