What Is Ambulatory Phlebectomy?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure which removes varicose veins. At the Vein Care Center, we typically perform this procedure in conjunction with Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT). During Ambulatory Phlebectomy treatment, tiny incisions are made so that we can remove the vein using a vein hook. It is performed under local anesthesia, and there is no downtime following the treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Ambulatory Phlebectomy?
There are many benefits to choosing Ambulatory Phlebectomy as a means to treat your venous condition. These include:
- Usually no stitches or sutures are needed
- Low incidence of recurrence
- Immediate results
- Minimally invasive
- Minimal discomfort following procedure
- Performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure
- No downtime
What Is the Difference Between Ambulatory Phlebectomy and Vein-Stripping Surgery?
Unlike vein-stripping surgery, in which a larger, deeper vein is removed through a major incision, Ambulatory Phlebectomy is minimally invasive. Tiny incisions, as small as 1mm, are made along the path of the vein. The vein is then “fished out” using a special hook.
Is Ambulatory Phlebectomy Right for Me?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy may be right for you if you suffer with painful, twisted superficial varicosities in the leg.
Who Should Avoid Ambulatory Phlebectomy?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy may not be the right option for those patients with active rashes, arterial circulation issues, clotting disorders or infections. Dr. Aggarwal will perform a thorough evaluation to determine whether the procedure is appropriate for your particular case.
