WHAT IS AMBULATORY PHLEBECTOMY?
Ambulatory phlebectomy is an outpatient procedure that removes superficial veins through small, slit-like incisions in the skin. The procedure involves four different steps:
- outlining or marking the veins to be treated;
- injecting local anesthesia into the skin;
- surgical removal of the bulging veins, segment by segment, through small incisions,
- wearing compression stockings for one week or more after surgery.
