Ambulatory Phlebectomy (AP)
What is Ambulatory Phlebectomy (AP)?
An Ambulatory Phlebectomy (AP) is a minimally invasive procedure which eliminates medium to large size varicose veins. It may be used by itself or as a complement to Saphenous Vein closure or Sclerotherapy.
During this procedure, which is done using local anesthesia, the skin is open and using special surgical instruments, the varicose veins are removed. The skin incisions are closed with small strips. Following the procedure you are encouraged to walk. You will be examined the next day to ensure a satisfactory recovery
