This procedure is used to successfully remove large surface varicosities with ultrasound guidance. During ambulatory phlebectomy, the diseased veins are pulled up and delicately removed through very small micro-punctures that do not require stitches. This procedure is often a more efficient way to treat surface veins than using multiple sclerotherapy sessions.
Advantages of Ambulatory Phlebectomy:
- No stitches
- Virtually no scarring
- Only local anesthesia needed
- Long-lasting results
