At The Cardiovascular Care Group and Vein Institute of New Jersey we care about education and transparency. It has been a proud tradition of ours since our founding in 1963, to ensure sound medical advice and treatments as well as a new outlook on life.
We’ve all heard of varicose veins. We’ve all heard of spider veins. But, when we tell a patient here at the Vein Institute of New Jersey that the unsightly blue line on their leg or thigh is a reticular vein, we get more than a few quizzical looks.
Microphlebectomy, the medical term for the removal of large or medium-sized protruding varicose veins is a procedure that can work for you. But, it requires a trained physician to evaluate if this is the right treatment to undertake.
While the name may sound complex and intimidating, microphlebectomy is an outpatient office procedure for the removal of a large varicose vein through a small incision in the leg. It is a safe and effective method for improving the look and feel of the leg.
Are my varicose vein treatments permanent and is it normal to get treated again?
