Vein stripping is surgery to remove varicose veins in the legs.

Varicose Vein stripping Surgery is an extend surgery. Vein is usually done when a large vein in the leg like superficial saphenous vein is thick and rope-like. Vein stripping usually takes about 1 to 2 1/2 hours. Most people receive either general or spinal anesthesia. Two or three surgical cuts are made by the surgeon in the leg.

The surgeon will thread a thin, plastic wire into the vein through groin and guide the wire through the vein toward the other cut. The wire is then tied to the vein and pulled out, which pulls the vein out with it. Same procedure is done for other damaged veins also.

Now a day's fewer vein stripping surgeries are done because there are newer and better non-surgical ways to treat varicose veins. These other treatments are less painful and have a much faster recovery time.
