Phlebectomy for Varicose Veins
Ambulatory phlebectomy (also known as vein avulsion) is a procedure used to remove bulging veins. Local anesthesia must be carried out prior to the procedure making it not only safe but also pain-free. The vein specialist then removes the large varicose veins via needle punctures and micro small incisions.
Stab Phlebectomy Procedure
Although not routine, ambulatory phlebectomy is a safe procedure and remains a much better alternative to vein stripping surgery. Unlike vein stripping surgery, an ambulatory phlebectomy allows a patient to go home right away and only requires the patient to wear bandages or leg wrappings for a week or more.
