Suction Phlebectomy

The Suction Phlebectomy system is a minimally invasive surgical technique that removes varicose veins through illumination, resection and tumescence using only two to three incisions. Developed by a surgeon, The Suction Phlebectomy system uses transillumination (the passing of light under the skin) to clearly identify and highlight the targeted veins. The surgeon removes the vein using a small surgical device. After the vein is removed, the area is flushed with a mild anesthetic. The procedure takes half the time as the conventional procedure and the benefits are a faster recovery with fewer incisions and a good cosmetic result.
