Chuback Vein Center
It’s estimated that as many as 35 percent of Americans experience varicose veins. This annoying and sometimes painful vascular issue results from changes in blood flow, which can result from weight changes, pregnancy, genetics, or other causes. While there are some ways to prevent varicose veins, once you have them and they become significant, phlebectomy, which essentially means vein removal, is a minimally invasive and highly effective way to stop the physical symptoms and aesthetic dissatisfaction associated with varicose veins.

If blood flow becomes restricted in certain areas, the blood can pool in that spot resulting in swollen, uncomfortable varicose veins. Sometimes, non-invasive methods can be used to address the issue, but in other cases, vein removal or “ambulatory microphlebectomy” is necessary.
This method has been successfully used for decades and involves making extremely small incisions, removing the misshapen part of the vein, and rerouting blood flow to healthy veins in the same area. “Ambulatory” is the key word, meaning that patients are able to walk on the same day as the procedure due to the minimal incisions.
Difficulty sitting or standing for long periods, not wanting to wear certain articles or styles of clothing, and pain with or without contact can plague those dealing with varicose veins. These issues can be completely addressed with ambulatory phlebectomy. Benefits of treatment include:
To be considered a candidate for varicose vein treatment Clifton patients will typically have varicose veins that are advanced enough that non-invasive treatment methods have been ineffective.
Optimal candidates should be generally healthy, not have ongoing issues that could hinder healing, and be able to commit to lifestyle changes post-treatment that will aid in the prevention of further varicose veins.
Chuback Vein Center
The outstanding patient care experience we offer at Chuback begins with your comprehensive consultation. We will take the time to get to know you and your vein health concerns. If we determine that you are a good candidate for ambulatory phlebectomy, we will craft a treatment plan, discuss expectations for the procedure, and cover any necessary preparation, including medication or supplement adjustments.
Varicose Vein Treatment takes approximately one hour, and only local anesthetic is needed. At the beginning of your treatment, the appropriate veins will be marked while you are in a standing position. Then, you can lie down and settle comfortably for administration of the local anesthetic. Once the area is completely numb, Dr. Chuback will make very tiny incisions and use a specialized hook-like instrument to remove the affected veins. They will then be rerouted, and the incisions will be carefully closed.
expect to notice results within a few weeks
Once the anesthetic wears off, you will be able to walk and return to most non-strenuous daily activities. We do recommend waiting on strenuous activities for two to three weeks. Some patients experience mild tenderness near the incisions for a few days, which is normal. You will see and feel results immediately since the affected veins are permanently removed.
Medical professionalism and aesthetic excellence are inseparable at Chuback Vein Center. We understand that both are required to deliver unparalleled patient care and highly satisfactory outcomes. Serving the Clifton, NJ, area, Dr. John Chuback and the entire team are committed to premier vein care and ensuring that each patient receives top-quality, personalized service.
