What Is A Phlebectomy?

Phlebectomy, also known as vein stripping, is a minimally invasive procedure designed to remove varicose veins. It offers a highly effective treatment for discomfort and swelling caused by damaged veins.

During a phlebectomy, tiny incisions are made over the varicose veins, and the veins are removed through these incisions. This is typically done under local anesthesia, and patients can usually go home the same day. Depending on patient preference light sedation can be used Recovery time can vary, but patients can typically return to their normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. It is more invasive with longer recovery, and there are risks associated with any surgical procedure.
