Varicose veins may be just an unsightly cosmetic concern, but sometimes they can cause pain or lead to more significant problems, like blood clots or bleeding. If you have enlarged varicose veins that you wish to have treated, consider a microphlebectomy at Vein Institute Hattiesburg and D'Iberville. Board-certified vein specialist Dr. J. Keith Thompson can perform a microphlebectomy, which is a minimally invasive procedure that improves the appearance of your skin by removing problematic varicose veins. If you would like to find out more information and see if you are a candidate for a microphlebectomy, call our practice in Hattiesburg and D'Iberville, MS, today to schedule a consultation.


If you're troubled by the appearance of varicose veins or the potential health problems that accompany them, microphlebectomy can provide relief. The benefits of this treatment include:

  • Improves aesthetic appeal by removing unsightly veins
  • Provides relief from itching or pain caused by varicose veins
  • Improves blood circulation in the legs
  • Offers less pain and a quicker healing process than some other vein treatments

In one of our private treatment rooms at our Hattiesburg and D'Iberville, MS, office, the microphlebectomy procedure takes around 15 minutes to complete. Localized anesthesia to the affected area is typically used to help keep you comfortable so you don't feel much of anything. Once you are numb, Dr. Thompson will make a tiny micro-incision into the skin and then use a small specially designed device to remove the varicose veins directly underneath the skin. After the treatment is finished, he will put tiny bandages over the incision sites. You are up walking around immediately following the procedure so there is typically no downtime, but you do need to avoid strenuous activity for a few days.

What a wonderful place. I'm truly happy I went to see Dr Thompson. He closed an ugly feeder vein that has been my shame for several years. I can't wait for shorts and swimsuit weather. And all of his staff are extra sweet and caring.  It was an excellent experience all the way around. I highly recommend the Vein Institute! You won't be disappointed.

About Us
Is microphlebectomy safe?

Absolutely, microphlebectomy is a safe outpatient office procedure. It's performed under local anesthesia, similar to Novocaine used in dental offices, ensuring minimal discomfort and safety. This approach significantly reduces anesthetic risks, making the process both effective and secure.

Are there risks involved with performing a microphlebectomy?

While every medical procedure carries some risk, microphlebectomy is generally very safe when conducted with sterile techniques. Infection is a rare complication due to the stringent sterile protocols in place, ensuring patient safety throughout the process.

Will the microphlebectomy procedure hurt?

Patients typically report little to no pain during the procedure. Local anesthesia is used to numb the area, which means you won't feel the incisions or the vein removal process. Post-operative pain is also rare, and most patients do not require strong painkillers after the procedure.
