With Ambulatory Microphlebectomy, tiny incisions are made over large varicosities and a small hook is used to remove the varicose vein forever.
This minor, outpatient procedure is performed under local anesthesia. No stitches are needed, and there is minimal to no scarring afterwards. The area is bandaged, and patients return in 24 hours for bandage removal. Patients are then provided with a compression stocking to be worn for two weeks to promote healing and minimize bruising and discomfort in the leg.
