Varicose Veins Treatment > Ambulatory Phlebectomy
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is the surgical removal of visible varicose veins, through keyhole incision.
The procedure eliminates varicose veins through a series of small punctures (as tiny as 1mm) made in the skin adjacent to the vein. The varicose vein is then removed in small segments. The veins are detected both visually and through the use of Doppler ultrasound.
Recovery is relatively quick with patients returning to work the day following the procedure. Ambulatory phlebectomy is often performed in conjunction with sclerotherapy.
