Dr. Golan at North Shore Vascular 1-847-441-2700
Vein ligation and stripping is an operative procedure that actually removes your problematic varicose vein(s). Before 2005, this procedure was the standard treatment for varicose veins (as performed by most physicians). But, due to its less invasive nature and shorter recovery time, vein laser therapy (EVLT) has significantly reduced the utilization of this technique. However, when the varicose vein anatomy is unusual, vein ligation and stripping may still be the best treatment option.
In the event that you have serious vein condition that requires this procedure (which would be very unusual), Dr. Golan would do the procedure at one of three top Chicago, North Shore area hospitals where he is an Attending Physician: Evanston Hospital, Highland Park Hospital or Glenbrook Hospital of NorthShore University HealthSystem.
Dr. Golan has performed hundreds of vein ligation and stripping procedures over his 25 year career as a vascular surgeon in the Chicago area.
