What is a Micro-Phlebectomy?

A micro-phlebectomy is removing veins surgically through a small incision.

 

Dr. Bush marks patient for a micro-phlebectomy.

The area is scrubbed with hibiclens soap and sterile drapes placed.

 

A local anesthetic called tumescent is injected at each marked area.

Removing a vein with a surgical hook through a small incision.

 

 

We then apply dermaka cream to treated areas. We apply cotton rolls, ABD pads, kerlix, coban, ACE wrap, & tape. The patient wears the dressing till morning, showers and then will wear thigh high compression stockings for a few days to a week. (15-20 mmHg)

 

We use Sigvaris compression stockings!
