Microphlebectomy Procedure

In this video Dr. Daugherty explains the procedure and walks the viewer through an actual microphlebectomy treatment.

Microphlebectomy is a minimally-invasive procedure to remove segments of large varicose veins near the skin. The older procedure which used to be performed through ½ inches or larger incisions is called “phlebectomy”. The newer “microphlebectomy” procedure involves 2-3 mm (less than 1/8 inch) incisions.

Endovenous Thermal Ablation Video
EVTA Video

In this video Dr. Daugherty explains and performs an EVTA, or Endovenous Thermal Ablation procedure.

Endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) is the most common approach to treatment of an incompetent great saphenous vein. It is not feasible to repair the many failed valves in the incompetent vein, so treatment involves sealing the vein shut so it will no longer allow blood to flow downward with gravitational force when one is sitting or standing. Vein stripping, a surgical technique that involves pulling the vein out of the leg, usually under general anesthesia, is much more traumatic than endovenous thermal ablation. EVTA provides better results, involves fewer complications, causes consistently less post-operative discomfort, and is much less expensive than surgical stripping.

    "Before graduating high school, I noticed a growing discomfort in my lower back region, leg pain, and severe pelvic pain. By age twenty-five, the pain had intensified beyond discomfort. As I was nearing thirty, my constant leg and pelvic pain interfered with my daily activities.…" -- R.C.
