About Phlebectomy

An ambulatory phlebectomy is an outpatient procedure performed to remove spider and varicose veins through small, slit-like incisions in the skin.
If varicose veins near the surface of the skin are too large to treat with sclerotherapy and too small to treat with laser ablation, pin-hole ambulatory phlebectomy is the preferred treatment.

The Procedure

This procedure involves less pain and fewer risks than traditional surgical treatment.
 
Before Treatment

  • Discuss all treatment and alternative options.
  • Conduct an overall health and physical examination of the legs.
  • Mapping the vein, examine the legs with ultrasound and determine the location and state of the greater saphenous vein and other side tributaries.

 

Procedure

  1. Veins to be treated will be identified and marked
  2. Administer local anaesthesia to the treatment site.
  3. Tiny incisions will be made in the targeted areas, and a surgical hook will be inserted to extract the damaged veins section by section.
  4. Apply compression banadages

 

After Treatment

  • Some bruising, discomfort and swelling are to be expected after the procedure.
  • Minimise pain and swelling with pain medication and compression garments.
  • You may resume normal activities, barring strenuous workouts.
