The Vein Institute of Toronto™
Microphlebectomy Technique

Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive surgical method used to remove surface varicose veins in the office by applying tumescent local anesthesia. When we administer tumescent anesthesia, the tissues are flooded with dilute liquid anesthetic and become distended. The large volume of fluid causes vessels to be compressed resulting in minimal bleeding. Here is an overview of what you can expect:

The procedure should take 30 minutes to 1 hour. Afterwards, your leg will be wrapped, and within 24 hours you can be back to your normal activities. You will need to wear compression stockings for 2 – 3 weeks after the procedure, and you should avoid strenuous exercise for 2 weeks.

Microphlebectomy Benefits

2% recurrence rate for microphlebectomy one year after treatment

At the Vein Institute Of Toronto, Dr. Sanjoy Kundu, may recommend Varithena™ (polidocanol injectable foam) if you have varicose veins that are ideal candidates for this treatment. Varicose veins are enlarged, bulging veins usually found in the legs. They can cause uncomfortable symptoms such as swelling and achiness. Untreated varicose veins tend to get worse over time and can lead to serious problems that might require hospitalization.
