Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy or “hook” phlebectomy is a micro-extraction procedure which allows for the removal of large and small surface varicose veins through very small incisions that need no stitches.

Skin incisions or needle punctures as small as 1 mm are used to extract veins with a phlebectomy hook. A hook is inserted into a micro-incision in the leg. A section of the vein is hooked and then removed through the incision. With this procedure, a compression bandage is worn for two weeks. This minimizes swelling and discomfort and allows for proper healing.
