An ambulatory phlebectomy is the surgical removal of unnecessary varicose veins through small incisions. This surgery can also be referred to as a hook phlebectomy—and it can be a very effective method for removal of varicose veins.
Over the past year, Dr. Gallagher had developed a new technique for performing Ambulatory Phlebectomy. By using acupuncture needles to stabilize a patient’s varicose veins, he has completely eliminated the need to make incisions to remove the veins. All veins can be removed through a small needle puncture, making the procedure viturally scar free. He has also extended this technique when performing Endovenous Laser Ablation. Therefore, with Dr. Gallagher’s innovative technique, it is now possible to treat every aspect of venous disease with just needle punctures; no incisions, no scars!
