Varicose veins are caused by the weakening valves and walls of the veins. These are enlarged and twisted veins that commonly occur in the legs and feet. There are conservative measures to prevent it from progressing further. The method of treatment depends on the severity of varicose veins. The surgical procedure for these swollen veins is called surgical vein stripping. It includes Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) or Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA). The process involves removing the affected veins through small incisions made in the leg. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia or regional anaesthesia. The diseased veins are first identified, allowing the surgeon to gently strip off the vein from the leg. The most appropriate treatment option will be performed for the specific case.
