Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a microsurgical procedure designed to remove secondary varicose veins. The abnormal vein is removed through a tiny incision or incisions, using a special set of tools. The procedure is done under local anesthesia and typically takes one to two hours or less. Recovery is rapid and most patients do not need to interrupt regular activity after the procedure. In fact, walking and staying active after the procedure typically is encouraged.
