Vein Surgery Q & A

Why do I need vein surgery?

Vein surgery is a common procedure used to treat painful varicose veins, the twisted, bulging veins that usually form in your legs.

In some cases, vein surgery may be necessary to prevent pain and other symptoms of varicose veins, but you may also wish to undergo vein surgery for cosmetic reasons.

What types of vein surgery are available?

The vascular surgeons at Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center offer several in-office surgeries using minimally invasive techniques for treating varicose veins and other vascular conditions.

Some examples of vein surgeries include:

Vein stripping

A procedure that involves tying off a vein and removing it before it can join with a deeper vein to prevent varicose veins and related symptoms.

Phlebectomy

A surgical procedure to remove small varicose veins through a series of small punctures in your skin.

Endovenous ablation

These treatments use laser or radiofrequency energy to heat the vein structure, allowing it to collapse and be absorbed by the body to eliminate the varicose vein.

Endoscopic vein surgery

A surgical procedure to address leg ulcers that can’t be treated with other therapies. Surgery involves special surgical instruments with an attached camera to close and remove varicose veins through small incisions.

Am I a good candidate for vein surgery?

Your Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center surgeon determines if vein surgery is the right option for you after a full review of your health and family history. They also perform a physical exam and may order diagnostic tests to evaluate the severity of your vascular condition.

Surgery is often the last resort for vein issues, and your doctor may recommend other treatments, like medications, compression stockings, and lifestyle modifications to improve your vein health before surgery is necessary.

If you have a condition that requires surgery, your Suffolk Vascular & Vein Center surgeon discusses all of your options and goals for treatment. They offer the convenience of on-site, outpatient surgery for varicose vein removal and other techniques at their office in Port Jefferson Station and create a customized surgical plan based on your needs.
