What is Phlebectomy?

Phlebectomy is a treatment that the physicians at Advanced Vein Therapy use to treat varicose veins. This minimally invasive procedure is done in the physician’s office and is performed as an outpatient option. During a phlebectomy, bulging veins located just under the skin are targeted, the affected area is numbed and tiny micro-incisions are made to allow for the removal of affected veins. Stitches are not required.

After the procedure is complete, the patient’s leg is placed in a snug but comfortable compression wrap to be worn for a specified period of time post-procedure.
