Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the nation’s largest physician-led vein treatment medical practice, is proud to announce a new location in the Highbridge neighborhood of the Bronx borough.

  • Education augmented by the Vascular Medicine Fellowship at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and a Phlebology Fellowship at NYU Langone Medical Center.

Venous insufficiency, the cause of varicose veins and spider veins, indiscriminately affects between 30 – 40 million Americans. Numerous factors including age, weight, prolonged sitting or standing, genetics or a history of DVT (blood clots) can increase the risk of developing this all-to-common and often under-diagnosed disorder. Treatment options range from simple lifestyle changes like exercising or taking frequent breaks from prolonged sitting or standing to an array of minimally-invasive, outpatient procedures that close problem veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier ones.

Having performed its first procedure in 2007 under President and CEO Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) has since become a nationally recognized leader in the treatment of varicose and spider veins. Dedicated to relieving leg pain, treating the vascular cause of severe leg wounds, and eliminating unsightly veins, CVR’s minimally invasive procedures allow patients to look better, feel better, and live better. With 57 locations and counting, they have assembled the most qualified and experienced team of physicians, researchers, and staff to serve patients across Alabama, Indiana, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC.
