Your doctor may recommend varicose vein surgery if you are experiencing:
The Varicose Veins surgery typically takes 60 to 90 minutes and is performed under general anesthesia. During this procedure your surgeon will make several small incisions, near the top and bottom of your damaged vein. One incision will be in your groin. The other will be farther down your leg, either in your calf or ankle. He/she will then thread a thin, flexible plastic wire into the vein through the groin incision. The wire will be tied to the vein and pulled out through the cut in the lower leg. Next your surgeon will close the incisions with stitches and place bandages and compression stockings on your legs.
