Microphlebectomy, also referred to as Ambulatory Phlebectomy, is occasionally recommended for the treatment of varicose veins because not all veins can be treated with sclerotherapy or EVLA or RFA. A minimally invasive surgical technique, Microphlebectomy is usually performed as a minor procedure under local anesthesia. Typically performed through a pinhole puncture, the technique permits the removal of most larger varicose veins, and results in very little patient recovery time. In some cases, this procedure is performed in conjunction with Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy.
