Vein Facts:

25 million Americans have varicose veins. The incidence of varicose veins increases with age in men and women.


The Removal of Veins with Minimal or No Scars

In the past, bulging venous varicosities were removed by surgical incisions, which usually required suturing leaving unsightly scars at the sites of the varicosities. Microphlebectomy, sometimes called ambulatory phlebectomy, allows for the removal of the abnormal veins through small puncture wounds that require no suturing and leave minimal or no scars. At Dallas Vein Specialists this office procedure can be accomplished under local anesthesia or if desired under conscious anesthesia. The tiny wounds cause no disability and heal quickly.
