Benefits of ambulatory phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a recommended treatment for patients with considerably large and swollen varicose veins. This procedure aims to completely remove the diseased vein, but unlike vein stripping, it replaces large incisions with a series of tiny incisions along the length of the vein. These small cuts, measuring 1 to 2 millimeters, allow the damaged vein to be carefully removed using surgical hooks. Ambulatory phlebectomy is most effective for veins that are close to the skin’s surface and can be performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. This procedure not only helps patients avoid the inconvenience and expense of a hospital visit but also delivers excellent medical and cosmetic results, with minimal pain and extremely short recovery times. The incisions associated with ambulatory phlebectomy are very small and do not require stitches, resulting in almost invisible scarring. When it comes to vein treatment, the Florida vein treatment specialists at the Kimmel Institute have extensive experience with ambulatory phlebectomy and are ready to address any questions you may have about this advanced and state-of-the-art procedure.
