New centers mark 7 locations in Connecticut

The Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the nation’s largest, physician-led, vein treatment medical organization, is proud to announce expansion to Glastonbury and Enfield, CT.

The Glastonbury, CT center has begun accepting patients at 622 Hebron Ave., Suite 103, Glastonbury, CT 06033. The practice will be lead by Dr. Jeffrey Takahashi, who also oversees the nearby Cromwell, CT location.

“Above all, my hope and mission at Center for Vein Restoration,” Dr. Takahashi begins, “is for all of my patients to see me as approachable, compassionate, and trustworthy. I believe that you achieve that type of relationship by treating patients as human beings who may be in need of help or advice and not as a collection of symptoms or physical findings.”

CVR names Dr. Fernando F. Illescas as practicing physician at the Enfield location. Dr. Illescas will now be overseeing both this new location as well as our nearby clinic in Bloomfield, CT. The Enfield, CT center has begun accepting patients at 113 Elm St., Suite 301, Enfield, CT 06082.

“The more I learned about venous disease and how the disease could be successfully treated,” Dr. Illescas begins, “the more excited I became. As a result of the growth of my professional interest in this field, I have chosen to devote my practice to full-­time treatment of venous insufficiency.”

These new locations will give local patients access to an expanded suite of advanced treatments for venous insufficiency—the underlying cause of varicose and spider veins. CVR provides person-to-person assistance to discuss treatment options, answer insurance questions, and make appointments. With 59 locations, CVR continues its march toward undisputed industry leadership.

With 25 years’ experience in treating vein disease Dr. Takahashi has served as Chief of Interventional Radiology, Senior Attending Radiologist and Director of Quality Assurance with Middlesex Hospital in Middletown, Connecticut. He was also founder and director of Middletown Vein and Aesthetic Center. Dr. Takahashi is Board certified with a medical degree from Georgetown School of Medicine in Washington, DC. He is also a three-time recipient of Connecticut Magazine’s “Top Doc Award” and a member of the American College of Phlebology, American College of Radiology, Society of Vascular Surgery and Society of Interventional Radiology

Dr. Illescas earned his medical degree from McGill University School of Medicine in Montreal, Quebec. He is Board Certified in diagnostic radiology with subspecialty certification in vascular and interventional radiology.
Dr. Illescas has previously served as attending vascular and interventional radiologist with Jefferson Radiology, P.C. and Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut. Of note, he served as Medical Director of The Vein Center of Jefferson Radiology in Farmington, Connecticut. As well, he has held academic and clinical appointments at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, McGill University School of Medicine and Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Illescas is a member of the American College of Phlebology, the Society of Interventional Radiology, the American College of Radiology, the Radiologic Society of North America, the American Roentgen Ray Society, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

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 underdiagnosed disorder. Treatment options range from lifestyle changes like exercising or taking regular 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 59 locations and counting, they have assembled the most qualified and experienced team of physicians, researchers, and staff to serve patients across Indiana, Alabama, Maryland, Virginia, Connecticut, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC.
