Minor Surgery for Varicose Veins - Microphlebectomy

There are many options to treat unwanted varicose veins underneath the skin.  Although our office offers the latest laser, radiofrequency, injection sclerotherapy, and endovenous options available for vein treatment; there are times when a simple surgical procedure can provide the most longterm gain with the least amount of downtime. The minor surgical option available for medium sized bulging varicose veins is known as microphlebectomy. Microphlebectomy is used to treat bulging varicose veins that just won't go away with laser treatment or sclerotherapy.  

Varicose veins can occur on any part of the feet, legs, and thighs.  Although we may think that the varicose veins randomly pop out of the skin, there formation is usually very predictable in patients who have longstanding venous insufficiency.  If you have a family history of varicose veins, or if you developed varicose veins because of pregnancy, your occupation, or injury; you may be a candidate for vein procedures such as endovenous ablation, microphlebectomy, laser vein removal, sclerotherapy, and ultrasound guided injection treatment.

Q: Can veins be removed safely? 
A: One of the most common procedures for unwanted varicose veins is a procedure known as a micro-phlebectomy, in which tiny veins are tied-off and removed from the legs. This procedure is an excellent method of vein treatment as it allows for the removal of unwanted and visible veins in a safe and efficient manner. Dr. Karamanoukian will determine which veins are amenable to treatment and can give you a dedicated vein treatment plan to help you solve your vein issues.
