What is a Phlebectomy?

This procedure is done to remove varicose veins on the surface of the leg. Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed by making tiny incisions in the leg. Because veins are very collapsible, the enlarged varicose veins can be removed through these small incisions. When performed for the appropriate medical reasons, phlebectomy has a 90% long-term success rate in treating varicose veins.
