One of the best, tried, and tested ways in which they can be operated on is Ambulatory microphlebectomy. It is called Ambulatory because of the way the procedure is carried out. It can be done in an outpatient setting and the patient can return to everyday life almost immediately after the treatment.

It was developed by a Swiss surgeon Dr. Robert Muller in the 1950's. There are three different hook sizes used and they are also differentiated by how sharp or blunt they are and their applications differ according to they way they are made.
