Ambulatory Phlebectomy Vein Treatment in Knoxville


Ambulatory Phlebectomy is an in-office procedure that removes medium to large diseased varicose veins through small incisions in the leg. During the treatment, the patient is under local anesthesia as veins close to the skin’s surface are plucked out with a small knitting needle-like hook.

The procedure normally takes less than an hour and little down time is required. Ambulatory phlebectomy can be performed in conjunction with other vein treatments such as laser, radiofrequency, and sclerotherapy.

After your treatment, it is reccomended that you wear compression stockings for up to 2 weeks while you heal. You should also avoid heavy exercise or exersion for at least a week.
