Phlebectomy, also called microphlebectomy or stab phlebectomy, is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove superficial varicose veins. These are varicose veins that have remained after venous closure or areas of localized reflux varicose veins. It involves the physical removal of veins that lie just below the skin. Phlebectomy is often used in conjunction with treatment for deeper veins such as RFA or VenaSeal.

During the procedure, tiny incisions are made in the skin above the varicose vein. These incisions are small enough to heal on their own without stitches. The affected portion of the vein is accessed through the incisions and carefully removed using special surgical tools. 

Phlebectomy is performed in an outpatient setting under local anesthesia.
