How is Ambulatory Phlebectomy in Houston Performed?
Ambulatory phlebectomy removes “special case” surface veins that, most commonly, remain after a VNUS Closure procedure has been performed to close deeper veins. This is especially the case in people who have had bulging veins over a long period.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy is also performed in conjunction with sclerotherapy and in cases where there are bulging veins but no major indications of venous reflux being present and the deeper saphenous veins are functioning properly.
Even though the vein is surgically removed, it’s very important not to confuse it with vein stripping — where the entire vein is pulled out through one major incision. Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that removes the vein through tiny, imperceptible incisions made along the vein path. The vein is then “fished out,” using a specialized phlebectomy hook.
What Can I Expect After Ambulatory Phlebectomy in Sugar Land?
Patients love the look and feel of their brand new legs following the ambulatory phlebectomy procedure. You may experience slight bruising or swelling. A bandage and/or compression stockings are worn post-procedure to aid recovery.
