Vein ablation is the main treatment for the veins which are the source of the varicose vein problem. However, after vein ablation, the bulging varicose veins may still remain. To complete treatment, those bulging veins may need to be removed. This is done with microphlebectomy. After numbing the area, a series of tiny nicks allows our physicians to carefully remove large bulging veins - ensuring you don't see or feel them again. No stitches are required and the technique typically leaves no scars.
