Phlebectomy Q & A 

What is Ambulatory Phlebectomy?

Performed on an outpatient basis, ambulatory phlebectomy is the painless removal of varicose veins by making small incisions near the veins and gently removing them. The result, after weeks of recovery and the consistent use of compression stockings, is a smooth skin surface, free of unsightly, bulging veins.

Ambulatory phlebectomy allows patients to walk and resume some normal activities shortly after the procedure.

Why Choose Ambulatory Phlebectomy for Varicose Veins?

For the treatment of large, superficial veins, many patients opt for phlebectomy when choosing a safe and effective way to remove the veins. Phlebectomy procedure is used for both symptomatic and asymptomatic bulging and varicose veins. Combined with other treatment options, phlebectomy provides clear advantages in the treatment of venous disease.

Important: Phlebectomy is only for patients who can walk and comfortably wear compression stockings. Both are a large part of the recovery process and are necessary for patients to see positive results from the procedure.

What Happens After An Ambulatory Phlebectomy Procedure?

The incisions for the phlebectomy procedure are so small, no stitches are needed. Your phlebectomy specialist will cover the incisions with light bandages and fit you with comfortable compression stockings. Patients who wear compression stockings for two to four weeks see the best results. You can resume normal activities such as walking and driving in the days following the procedure. To aid recovery, patients are encouraged to avoid running, jogging, or intense workouts seven to ten days post procedure. For any discomfort, we recommend Ibuprofen or Celebrex.
