The Ambulatory Phlebectomy treatment is a minor surgical procedure for varicose veins. The procedure begins by making openings so small they rarely even need to be sealed in order to heal. These tiny openings are used to extract the bulging vein. Once the removal of the vein has been completed, the opening is covered with a compression bandage. The blood supply will naturally be rerouted by the body to healthier veins.
An Ambulatory Phlebectomy is used to treat veins coming off either the small or the main great saphenous vein. this procedure is most often used for varices below the knees. The saphenous vein and saphenous nerve are near one another in the calf.
Long term success is achieved by the vast majority of patients. As time passes, new varicose veins can develop in different locations. To help ensure the best possible vein health, it is important to maintain a healthy body weight, stick with an exercise program or regime and avoid spending long periods of time either standing still or sitting. If the condition is not showing any signs of improvement or new veins have started to form, it is recommended to make an appointment with the doctor.
The Benefits of an Ambulatory Phlebectomy
An Ambulatory Phlebectomy provides a lot of benefits and is a good option to eliminate bulging varicose veins. This treatment works best for bulging varicose veins located near the surface of the skin. Any symptoms caused by the vein are immediately eliminated during the procedure because the impacted vein is completely removed from the body during the treatment. This procedure is minimally invasive surgical procedure only requiring local anesthetic and tiny openings in the skin. This means the treatment can be performed effectively right in the doctor’s office. No overnight hospital stay or general anesthesia are necessary.
The Ambulatory Phlebectomy treatment has a fast recovery process. Once the procedure is complete, the individual may return home the same day. It is important to wear the compression stocking recommended by the physician. If you have bulging varicose veins and the associated symptoms, this treatment may be the solution you need.
