Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive technique to remove special case varicose veins from the surface of the leg. By special case, we mean veins that remain after the closure of underlying superficial veins or bulging veins that are unrelated to any venous reflux disorder. Therefore, an ambulatory phlebectomy is usually performed after a patient has already had RFA treatment to close their bulging veins.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is often performed in conjunction with sclerotherapy.

During the procedure
The procedure involves tiny incisions made in the skin through which a small instrument is used to hook and remove the varicose veins. Phlebectomy is an outpatient procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia.
After the procedure
Patients love the look and feel of their brand new legs following the ambulatory phlebectomy procedure. You may experience bruising or swelling. Bandages and/or compression stockings are worn post-procedure to aid recovery.
