Bulging, twisted varicose veins are unsightly, uncomfortable, and may lead to serious complications. In order to make sure your veins remain as healthy as possible, it may be necessary to undergo treatment. Today’s vein specialists have a number of safe and effective treatments at their disposal, including ambulatory phlebectomy. Read on to learn more about what you can expect from this minimally invasive form of vein treatment.
What should New York City patients know about receiving ambulatory phlebectomy?
Ambulatory phlebectomy helps to remove clusters of varicose veins. It is often used in conjunction with another vein closure procedure, such as Endovenous LASER Therapy, as well as many others. This procedure uses tiny punctures to remove the vein completely, leaving you with smoother, healthier, and more aesthetically pleasing legs.
When you undergo ambulatory phlebectomy, you can expect the procedure to be over quickly, in many cases within thirty or so minutes. Before the procedure begins, the area will be treated with a local anesthetic, eliminating any discomfort you may feel.
Since the phlebectomy is not surgery, there is no incisions being made, and the entire procedure is done through several smallest needle sticks. The procedure does not require any limitations in physical activity or any other modifications in your lifestyle, including your work.
Will ambulatory phlebectomy prevent new varicose veins from forming?
Ambulatory phlebectomy is not only an effective way to deal with bulging vein problems you may currently be experiencing, but will also prevent the new problems from developing in the future.
