What is an ambulatory phlebectomy?
Ambulatory phlebectomy, also referred to as microphlebectomy or stab phlebectomy, is a 30–60 minute minimally invasive procedure used to remove varicose veins. A phlebectomy procedure may be performed with other procedures, such as:
- Endovenous laser therapy
What does an ambulatory phlebectomy procedure involve?
The ambulatory phlebectomy procedure involves your doctor removing your affected veins. Your doctor will start off by having you stand in an upright position so that he can mark which veins will be removed. Your doctor will then have you lie down on an operating table and local anesthesia will be administered. Once you are comfortable and relaxed, your doctor will carefully make tiny incisions near your varicose veins and gently remove the varicose veins through the incisions.
Phlebectomy recovery time varies from patient to patient. However, recovery time after ambulatory phlebectomy is usually minimal and you may be able to return to your normal activities the same day as your procedure.
