Ambulatory Phlebectomy (Varicose Vein Removal) in Houston, TX
Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. It’s used to remove bulging varicose veins located just below the skin.
Phlebectomy is performed under local anesthesia. One of our doctors makes several small incisions to extract the bulging varicose vein. Since the incisions are so small, stitches are not required and there is minimal scarring which usually disappears entirely within six months. The procedure is called “ambulatory” because the patient can walk right afterwards.
Before recommending an ambulatory phlebectomy, one of our doctors will perform a full medical examination to determine the cause of your pain, and whether the procedure is most appropriate for your condition. Ambulatory phlebectomy is an outpatient procedure performed in the doctor’s office. You experience little or no pain and can walk immediately following the surgery. You may feel immediate symptom relief, however, there may be some degree of residual tenderness and discomfort for up to a week after the procedure.
