Ambulatory Phlebectomy

  • Ambulatory phlebectomy is usually performed in a doctor’s office using local anesthesia.
  • After marking the location of the abnormal veins and cleaning the skin, the area surrounding the varicose veins are flooded with anesthetic fluid. Small 2 to 3 mm openings in the skin are then used to insert a small hook and the varicose veins are gently grasped and removed.
  • Ambulatory phlebectomy is often performed in conjunction with minimally invasive endovenous catheter procedures.
