Microphlebectomy or ambulatory phlebectomy (AP) is a minimally-invasive surgical technique used to treat visible, prominent, and painful varicose veins.
Highly Effective and Safe Varicose Vein Treatment
Microphlebectomy is especially effective for larger veins, yielding faster results and eliminating the need for additional anesthesia. With a high success rate, our experienced and board-certified vein doctors employ targeted mapping of the veins and make tiny incisions directly over the varicose vein segments, allowing for their removal in a single session.

What Is Microphlebectomy?
Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that removes varicose veins through small incisions in the skin. Your doctor inserts a special tool through a tiny incision, so there is no need for general anesthesia or a hospital stay. Microphlebectomy is the ideal treatment for large varicose veins, as larger veins do not always respond well to sclerotherapy. The procedure takes an average of 45 to 60 minutes to complete, and you can expect to walk out right after the procedure is finished and resume your daily activities.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Local anesthesia numbs the area where the doctor will remove your varicose veins, ensuring you do not feel any pain during the procedure. The surgeon will make small incisions in the skin over the varicose veins. A hook-like tool is then used to remove the veins through the incisions.
This process is repeated until all of the varicose veins have been removed. After all the varicose veins have been removed, the incisions are closed with small strips of tape or stitches. You may need to wear compression stockings for a few days after the procedure to help with healing.
When Is AP Preferred?
AP treatments are carefully evaluated against sclerotherapy and are generally reserved for larger veins. While sclerotherapy is done by simple injections, it can be associated with more extended recovery periods. In suitable circumstances, ambulatory phlebectomy stands out for its ability to deliver faster results and higher levels of patient satisfaction.
Does It Cause Scarring?
Phlebectomy is still a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure is done in the office and does not require more than just local anesthesia. Our board-certified vein doctors will use targeted mapping of the veins with tiny incisions directly over the varicose vein segments, removing them in a single setting.
