What is an Ambulatory Phlebectomy?
Varicose veins lie just beneath the surface of the leg, unlike deep vein problems. A Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure using a specialty hook to gently remove the varicose veins manually that are not too deep under the skin. Phlebectomy of varicose veins is extremely successful when performed on patients who are a good fit for the procedure.
Ambulatory phlebotomy is a method of removing large, bulging varicosities. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia administered in the doctor’s office. There is rarely any pain reported by patients. This is because of the local anesthesia that is used. Patients remain asleep throughout the entire procedure. The incisions that are made throughout the procedure are so small that they usually don’t even require stitches. They heal naturally with a little bit of dressing to protect them.
Your leg will be wrapped up in a gauze or compression wrap to keep everything together and protected during healing. You need to wear a graduated compression stocking after the procedure. This usually needs to be kept on for two to three weeks from your procedure. As long as you are wearing these stockings, you can resume normal activity the day after surgery. You will be able to resume daily activity just 24 hours after the procedure most of the time. Ask your doctor if they do not let you know specifically or mention this might not be the case.

San Diego Phlebectomy Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Phlebectomy procedure?
Phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses a small scalpel or needle to remove varicose veins that lie just beneath the surface of the leg.
Is vein stripping the same as Phlebectomy?
Phlebectomy is a more recently developed procedure and is less invasive when compared to vein stripping. This procedure does remove the varicose veins from the treated area, but through a minimally invasive incision.
Is Phlebectomy painful?
Patients rarely report any pain during this procedure because the area being worked on is under a local anesthetic. The incisions made during the procedure are so small that no stitches are required. A small dressing is applied to cover the incisions.
Is Phlebectomy safe?
Phlebectomy usually does not lead to complications. Possible complications include short-term skin color change, infection, pain, and tiny red spider veins.
