Small varicose veins are sometimes best eliminated using a procedure called microphlebectomy. During microphlebectomy, Dr. Golan makes a tiny incision in the skin and the varicose vein is 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 immediate.
