Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used for the treatment of bulging varicose veins. This method is also known as “hook” phlebectomy. The procedure is done in our Orlando vein center. Micro-incisions are made in the leg near the varicose vein. These incisions are so small they do not require stitching. A doctor then inserts a small surgical hook into the opening and removes the varicose vein. Since a local anesthesia is used, the patient only feels a slight pulling sensation and no significant pain. After the procedure, patients may experience slight bruising and swelling, but these can be minimized with the use of compression stockings.

To see if ambulatory phlebectomy is right for you, or to learn about other varicose vein treatment options, contact our Orlando Center for Vein & Vascular Disease today.
