Diseased veins are removed through tiny incisions
Ambulatory Phlebectomy, also an office procedure, is done with local anesthesia as portions of the diseased vein are removed through tiny incisions. A hook is inserted in each incision, the vein is pulled through, and a vein segment between incisions is removed. During one phlebectomy session, several sections are removed. This is usually done because the vein is stretched and tough, and otherwise takes a long time to dissolve and disappear. This is much kinder, and much less scarring, than the old-fashioned stripping surgery, in which the vein is severed at the top of the thigh and near the ankle, and the whole vein in between is torn out.
