Phlebectomy is the actual physical removal of a varicose vein through a small incision site. Patients may require multiple incisions to remove the diseased veins. We have this procedure available for situations where less invasive methods either aren’t working or are not an option. Your doctor will determine if this method is best for your particular situation. Phlebectomy is a proven way to eliminate varicose veins, but it comes with the downside of multiple small incisions and more discomfort. However, it does offer the patient who has risks with the more current and less invasive treatments an option for treating their vein disease.
