Varicose vein surgery (stripping) or Laser (RF)?
I have varicose veins in both legs. My vascular surgeon recommends laser (RF), but it's much more expensive than surgery (stripping). Both have similar results & recurrence rates. But healing times are different - with Laser you are back at work in 24 hr., with surgery it's 1-2 weeks.
I don't mind slightly longer length of recovery time. I just want to choose the best and safest option that will not make varicose veins reappear in the future.
