Ambulatory Phlebectomy (Microphlebectomy)
Ambulatory Phlebectomy removes large varicose vein branches through multiple tiny punctures using a special hook instrument. By removing faulty portions of a vein, the remaining vein can clot off causing the vein to be eliminated and blood to be flow through rerouted veins. This procedure is best used to treat veins too large for sclerotherapy and too small for laser treatments.
Pinhead-sized punctures are made and the vein is removed, typically leaving nearly imperceptible scars. Large varicose veins are permanently removed, providing excellent aesthetic results and relief of symptoms.
This procedure is performed in the office under local anesthesia. Occasional bruising and temporary numbness may be experienced. Patient are able to return to normal activity immediately after the procedure.
