Ambulatory Micro-Phlebectomy

Ambulatory micro -phlebectomy utilizes minimally invasive techniques developed in Europe to eliminate large, bulging varicose veins. Affected veins are delicately pulled up and gently removed through tiny 2mm incisions that do not require sutures. The incisions are so small that, after normal healing, one can scarcely find them on the leg. This procedure is safely performed in the Vein Center under local anesthesia, usually with some sedation. It can be employed when the saphenous vein is not diseased or has been previously dealt with.

Recovery is almost immediate; patients can walk right out of the office. Postoperative pain is minimal and can be controlled with a mild pain reliever. Mild bruising will appear, but usually resolves within a few weeks. Most patients are back to work and their normal activities in two days.

Following this procedure, the legs are elevated for the first day. Light compression stockings are worn for two weeks. This minimizes swelling and discomfort and allows for quick healing.
