Ambulatory phlebectomy – also known as “hook” phlebectomy – is a minimally invasive varicose vein removal procedure that has helped both men and women return to active, healthy lifestyles with virtually no additional scaring or side effects.
Who Is It For?
Generally recommended for patients who suffer from painful varicose veins that protrude from the surface of the lower extremities.
About The Ambulatory Hook Phlebectomy Procedure
Compared to traditional vein stripping methods, an ambulatory phlebectomy is a varicose vein treatment option that can be performed in-office under local anesthesia, and in most cases requires only one visit to complete.
The ambulatory phlebectomy procedure uses micro-extraction hooks to remove varicose veins through a very small incision. After successful removal, patients are fitted with a compression bandage that is worn for two weeks – helping to minimize swelling, discomfort, and allow for proper healing.
The vast majority of ambulatory phlebectomy procedures are carried out in conjunction with EVLT for maximum aesthetic results, but patients can also benefit from it as a standalone procedure. Patients who opt for this treatment option minimize their risks of intra-arterial injection, skin necrosis, and residual skin darkening.
