Possibly: Phlebologists are doctors specializing in vein disorders. There are multiple tools available to them and microphlebectomy is only one. A full evaluation will allow your doctor to decide on the best approach for your varicose vein. Vascular surgeons and plastic surgeons also manage these problems.
