Phlebectomy or Müller treatment varicose veins
Phlebectomy means removing a vein. This technique was developed in the 1950s by Dr. Müller and is therefore also called Müller treatment. The doctor will mark the vein on the leg before the procedure.
Then, after a local anaesthetic, the doctor makes small incisions (3-5 mm) in your skin at the location of the varicose vein. The vein is then ‘fished’ out of your leg with a special hook. These incisions are so small that no stitching is required. After removing the varicose vein, a sterile adhesive plaster is applied to the wounds, which you can remove yourself after about a week. A gauze with a plaster goes over the adhesive plaster, this can be removed after 5 days (at the same time as the stocking). Finally, you will be given an elastic stocking which can be removed after 5 days.
The treatment will take about 45-60 minutes and you can go home immediately after the treatment.
