    Varicose veins are an early manifestation of chronic venous insufficiency. Traditionally, varicose veins were removed with multiple stab incisions and hook phlebectomy.

    How is the procedure performed?

    Doctor is doing a small cut or incision in the skin near the varicose vein then the vein is taking out with the help of the special hook, crosses over and removes.

    What to expect during and after the procedure?

    Patients rarely report any pain during this procedure because the area being worked on is under a local anesthetic.

    The incisions made during the procedure are so small that no stitches are required. A small dressing is applied to cover the incisions.

    When the procedure is complete, your leg will be wrapped in a comfortable but snug compression wrap.

    When i can be back to my usual daily activities?

    You will need to wear graduated compression stockings for approximately two to three weeks following the procedure. As long as the stockings are worn, almost all activities can be done beginning the day after the surgery.

    You should be able to resume daily activities within 24 hours. Strenuous activities will be limited for approximately two weeks.
