Vein Stripping and Other Outdated Techniques (Medium)Vein Stripping and Other Outdated Techniques is often a turn off for people suffering in silence with varicose vein problems. The thought of those old fashioned techniques  is often enough to make people run for the hills.

Vein Care is Melbourne’s most trusted varicose vein treatment provider for a reason: we prioritise the most advanced, effective and safest varicose vein treatments for our patients. We do not provide vein stripping as some other facilities do and regard it as an outdated practice for the following reasons.

Vein stripping complications

Vein stripping can cause a number of serious complications, including:

  • Nerve damage/numbness
  • Pain
  • Lymphatic tissue damage
  • Chronic leg swelling
  • Unsightly scarring and bruising
  • Substantial recovery time
  • Higher risk of abnormal veins returning
  • Blood clots


Some of these complications are inconveniences, but others (particularly blood clots and nerve damage) can be serious and lasting problems.
