What is Varicose Vein Surgery/Vein Stripping?

Ligation and stripping was historically the primary varicose vein treatment, but has been largely supplanted by endovenous ablation procedures in recent years. In certain circumstances in recent years (large veins) it is still appropriate and indicated.

How is Varicose Vein Surgery performed at Family Hospital?

Some of the symptoms of varicose veins are pain, leg fatigue, itching, burning, and walking difficulty. This is done under general anesthesia or mild sedation depending from person to person. It takes between 60-90 minutes, and It is an ambulatory procedure meaning that you can go home the same day.
