With this blog, we would like to offer our patients and readers insights regarding the difference between conventional vein stripping and the laser alternative.

Vein stripping and ligation

The conventional treatments i.e. vein stripping and ligation are highly invasive and require the incision.


In this procedure, the saphenous vein through a minor incision is tied off leading to an increase in blood pressure due to the flow of blood in the backward direction.

Vein stripping

In this process, the vein is removed through an incision which is made in the region behind the knee or in the area near the groin.

For both the aforementioned procedures, general anesthesia is given to the patient and it usually takes around an hour or an hour and a half to complete the treatment. Moreover, patients are discharged on the same day of the surgery and the recovery period spans between two to four weeks depending on the complexity of the treatment.

Endovenous laser ablation

In comparison with vein stripping, endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is less complicated and less invasive when it comes to removing the varicose veins. Moreover, the recovery period is relatively short. A local anesthesia is used at the time of the surgery in which an optical fiber is inserted inside the damaged vein through an opening that is made in the skin.

The energy produced by a laser is focussed on the walls of the vein which generates heat causing the vein to fall off and seal itself. After the vein closes down, the body then directs the flow of blood to the veins that are healthier and are deep in the leg.

There are no major side-effects or complications associated with the procedure. However, a few patients are likely to experience a slight redness and swelling post the treatment that can be dealt with using over the counter medication. Further, one can resume their daily routine within 24 hours from the procedure although it is important to avoid exerting your body. You can enhance the healing process by walking daily.
