Surgical Vein Stripping

Surgical vein stripping is a procedure for the removal of very large varicose veins. Varicose veins are the result of damaged valves in the veins of the legs. This causes the blood to flow backwards, instead of towards the heart, a condition known as venous reflux disease. If an entire vein is damaged, it may be necessary to remove it using surgical stripping.

The surgical stripping procedure is done at the hospital by a vascular surgeon. An incision is made and the vein is removed completely. This procedure is more invasive than either vein ligation or endovenous catheter occlusion and usually requires going under general anesthesia and a hospital stay.
