Vein Stripping Billerica MA

Vein stripping (also called ligation & stripping) is commonly done under general or regional anesthesia in an operating room. An incision is made in the groin, and the problem vein is tied off at its origin (ligation). Then, a wire ‘stripper’ is inserted down the vein, and the vein is then pulled out (stripping). Remaining vein branches (from which the removed vein has been stripped) may cause some additional bleeding and bruising, but this usually subsides with time. Recovery usually takes one to four weeks.
