Microphlebectomy Treatment for Varicose Veins
Small varicose veins can sometimes be best eliminated using a procedure called microphlebectomy. During microphlebectomy, Dr. Golan makes a tiny incision in the skin and the varicose vein is actually removed. The procedure is done with local anesthesia and no stitches are needed. Patients are only required to wear compression stockings for a few days after the procedure. Typically, there is minimal discomfort, and excellent results are generally immediate.
Dr. Golan has performed thousands of microphlebectomy procedures over his 25 year career as a vascular surgeon in the Chicago area.
