Stab Phlebectomy

This method removes superficial varicose veins that are not amendable to endovenous ablation. Under local anesthesia, tiny punctures, or microincisions are made. Through these small incisions, phlebectomy hooks extract the varicose veins. The incisions are so small that no stiches are required. This procedure is well tolerated by patients and produces excellent cosmetic results.
