GREENBELT, Md., Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Center for Vein Restoration (CVR), the national leader in treating varicose and spider veins, celebrated their 100th center nationwide with the recent acquisition of Dr. Calcagno and Dr. Rossi of the Vein Treatment Center in Mechanicsburg, PA. This milestone was achieved with growth and expansion of care throughout the United States in 2020 for CVR. Additional centers were added to their existing footprint in Alabama, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, New Mexico, Illinois, and Maryland. Center expansion occurred in new states as well, opening or partnering with practices in Texas, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Center for Vein Restoration now has locations in 22 states, including the District of Columbia.
"Milestones like 100 centers show that when you put patients first, anything is possible," offered President and CEO Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal. "We are so excited and humbled by the way the team rose to the occasion of 2020 and how we stayed true to our mission of providing and expanding compassionate, affordable venous care throughout the United States. We are proud to have kept our existing centers open and are looking forward to serving more communities this year," he ended.
The way doctors saw patients and patients saw doctors, was altered by the global pandemic. In similar fashion, the way CVR educated the community on venous disease also changed. "In previous years, the CVR team in the field conducted thousands of in-person medical education events for providers. In 2020, that was not an option. We quickly shifted and provided value virtually so that during this important time, clinicians were still able to have access to the critical symptoms of venous disease in order to help their patients immediately," said Dr. Khanh Nguyen, Chief Medical Officer
Led by President and CEO, Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, CVR hosted over a dozen free, accredited webinars for care providers that expanded around the world. With hundreds of attendees each session, CVR affirmed itself as the clinical and national leaders in complete venous care. "CVR showed in 2020 that adaptability and perseverance were the key components of our business, solidifying our foundation and positioning us for greater success ahead," Dr. Nguyen concluded.
CVR's signature clinical convention, VISION 2021 is scheduled for January 30th and will be their largest virtual event yet. More information on this event can be found at http://www.centerforvein.com/vision2021.
ABOUT VENOUS INSUFFICIENCY
Venous insufficiency, the cause of significant suffering due to the sequelae of venous hypertension, most commonly arises as achy, tired and heavy legs. It may or may not be associated with varicose veins, spider veins or skin changes including venous ulcerations and 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 common and often underdiagnosed disorder. Treatment options have evolved to an array of minimally invasive procedures in an office setting.
