Grand Rapids Clinic Becomes 37th Location in Growing Practice Serving Patients in Michigan, Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia

Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the nation’s largest physician-led vein treatment medical practice, is proud to announce its expansion to Grand Rapids, Michigan through the acquisition of Grand Rapids Vein Clinic. The expansion marks an exciting milestone for CVR, which already serves western Michigan patients in Kalamazoo/Portage, along with 36 other clinical locations in Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The Grand Rapids clinic is located at:
1720 Michigan Street NE
Grand Rapids, MI 49503
Phone: (616) 454-8442 / (800) FIX-LEGS

“Venous insufficiency is a condition that affects more than 30 million Americans and we believe that treating this potentially serious problem is a right, not a privilege,” said CVR President and CEO Sanjiv Lakhanpal, MD. “That’s why we’re proud to expand our practice to serve more patients than ever and bring genuine relief so people can get back to feeling better, living better and looking better.”

The acquisition means local patients will have access to an expanded suite of advanced treatments for venous insufficiency, and access to a large Patient Services call center offering person-to-person assistance to discuss treatment options, answer insurance questions, and make appointments. Michigan patients will continue to be served by Grand Rapids physicians Joseph B. Marogil, MD, and Laura Kelsey, MD:
