Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure performed by Serrano Kidney and Vascular Access Center (KVAC) of California that allows for the removal of large varicose veins through very small incisions. Unlike traditional, more invasive surgeries this can be done in office. Prior to treatment of varicose veins a physical examination is done and a complete vein history is preformed.
An ultrasound study of the varicose veins in question may or may not be ordered depending on their size, their location, any previous varicose vein treatments that might have been done and other factors. Based on the physical examination and any test results, Dr. Serrano may recommend you have a microphlebectomy. The long term results of microphlebectomy are excellent when performed by a skilled vascular surgeon for the appropriate medical reasons.
