Ambulatory Phlebectomy for Veins
Ambulatory Phlebectomy for Veins is a surgical treatment for visible small to large tortuous veins. It involves surgical excision of the veins under local anaesthetic using very tiny incisions. The visibility of these incisions after healing and the recovery time can vary among individuals.
Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

Surgery can be an option for treating larger veins where the main valves in the groin or back of the knee are defective. This can involve ligation (tying off) the vein in these areas, or in addition, stripping and removal of veins from the legs. The suitability of this procedure can vary depending on individual circumstances.
This is a traditional method for treating large varicose veins. This surgery usually requires a hospital stay and is done under general anaesthetic. It is considered in certain cases, such as when patients are unable to return for several treatment sessions required with the non-surgical treatment methods.
During a consultation with one of our Doctors, we discuss the alternative treatment methods available. The most suitable treatment will depend on individual circumstances.
