Ambulatory Phlebectomy for Veins
This 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 which become almost invisible when healed. This method is suitable for patients who require a relatively quick recovery from surgery.
Surgery may be more suitable for larger veins where the main valves in the groin or back of the knee are defective. This may entail only ligation (tying off) the vein in these areas, or in addition, stripping and removal of veins from the legs.
This is the older and traditional method for treating large varicose veins. This surgery usually requires a hospital stay and is done under general anaesthetic. It is now used by us as a last resort and also for patients living far away and unable to return for several treatment sessions required with the non-surgical treatment methods.
At your no obligation consultation with one of our Doctors we discuss the alternative treatment methods available and what would be the most suitable treatment for you.
