Microphlebectomy Treatments for Varicose Veins in Cape Cod
Also known by these names — phlebectomy, ambulatory phlebectomy, and stab avulsion — microphlebectomy sometimes get the nod as the preferred treatment for a person’s varicose veins. That’s often true when the veins are somewhat larger and nearer to the surface of the skin. Microphlebectomy is sometimes used in tandem with other varicose vein treatment procedures.
Microphlebectomy: A Minimally Invasive Treatment for Varicose Veins
There are many new and sophisticated varicose vein treatments that use an IV catheter to enter the varicose vein and abolish it. This allows nearby veins to handle the blood once carried by the troublesome vein. At Southeastern Vascular, we specialize in all of these new treatments.
But as you’ll see, microphlebectomy is a traditional, but extremely effective, procedure for the right situation.
How We Perform a Microphlebectomy Procedure
One or more micro-punctures are made, through which your Southeastern Vascular doctor will extract the varicose vein. Like other treatments, this, too, is a minimally invasive procedure. The benefits:
- Local anesthesia only
- No stitches required
- Minimal postoperative discomfort
- Afterward, a bandage and/or compression stocking will need to be is worn for a short while
Is Microphlebectomy an Option for You?
The safe answer is…”maybe.” We would need to do a thorough and proper examination. Only then will your Southeastern Vascular doctor be able to make precise recommendations.
Remember: Varicose veins are caused by a medical condition known as “venous insufficiency.” And because this is a medical condition, it requires the attention of medical professionals.
