Located in Bellevue and serving Sandusky, Fremont, and Norwalk, Ohio, the board-certified radiologists at Vein and Body Specialists offer effective microphlebectomy treatment for spider or varicose veins. Our highly-skilled specialists are known for providing caring, courteous and expert service.
What is Microphlebectomy?
Often called ambulatory phlebectomy, microphlebectomy is a safe, effective procedure for the removal of varicose veins. This minimally invasive procedure is most often performed in conjunction with endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) for maximum effectiveness.
How Does This Treatment Work?
During ambulatory phlebectomy or microphlebectomy, a series of tiny incisions (so small that there will be no scar) are made in the treatment area. Using the incisions, our specialist inserts a small vein hook to remove the targeted vein. We use local anesthesia to keep you comfortable, and pain-free during treatment, and you can return home immediately after treatment.
What Are The Benefits Of Microphlebectomy?
Microphlebectomy offers many benefits. Using microphlebectomy to treat varicose veins provides:
- Immediate results
- No downtime
- No need for stitches
- No need for general anesthesia
- Long-term results
- No compression stocking after treatment
Is Microphlebectomy Safe?
At Vein and Body Specialists, we offer a variety of vein treatments in order to best meet the diverse needs of our patients. All of our treatments are safe, effective and well-researched.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
There is no downtime associated with this procedure.
What Are The Results?
Immediately, your ropey, twisted and visible varicose vein will disappear. After the vein is removed, the blood recirculates into surrounding veins.
How Soon Will Results Appear?
One of the primary benefits of microphlebectomy is the immediate results! Our patients are always thrilled after looking at their legs immediately following treatment.
Who Should Avoid Microphlebectomy?
Microphlebectomy is most effective for patients whom have large varicose veins that are too twisted to treat with a laser catheter/fiber and are too large for sclerotherapy treatment. If you have an infection, we will not perform microphlebectomy until it is eliminated. Your candidacy will be determined at your consultation, following an assessment, ultrasound exam, and discussion.
How Much Does Microphlebectomy Treatment Cost?
There is no one cost for microphlebectomy treatment, as the cost varies depending upon your treatment plan. We will always ensure that you know the cost upfront and will work with you to determine a plan that is both affordable and effective. We offer financing options such as deposits on accounts prior to treatment, CareCredit® and we accept credit cards (Master and Visa).
