Diseased veins are removed through tiny incisions

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

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.
