Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy
Transilluminated Powered Phlebectomy (TIPP) is a surgical procedure used to remove varicose veins with a minimal number of small incisions and easy recovery.
“Transilluminated” refers to the passing of light through the skin, which happens during this procedure. The surgeon views the vein with a transilluminating light and removes it using a small powered surgical device. Normal veins begin to work more effectively after the removal of the diseased veins. This procedure offers good cosmetic results.
