Ambulatory Microphlebectomy

This is an outpatient procedure that involves the removal of superficial veins through small, slit-like incisions in the skin. There are four steps in this procedure:

  • Marking the veins to be treated.
  • Injecting local anaesthesia around the bulging veins.
  • Removal of the bulging veins, segment by segment, through small incisions.
  • Wearing compression stockings for two weeks.

A phlebactomy can be performed or in conjunction with sclerotherapy. The procedure is minimally painful, with little or no scarring.
