Vein Ligation and Stripping (Babcock procedure)

This procedure is performed in the operating room. It involves tying off the affected vein through small incisions, and then stripping the vein from the leg. This technique is typically used for removal of the saphenous vein from the leg. Patients are discharged the same day with a brief recovery period.
