For endoscopic vein surgery, Dr. Tilara will make a small cut in the skin near a varicose vein.

A tiny camera at the end of a thin tube is moved through the vein as a surgical device at the end of the camera closes the vein. Endoscopic vein surgery is only used in severe cases when varicose veins are causing skin ulcers (sores). After the procedure, patients can return to normal activities within a few weeks.
