The mission of Center for Vein Restoration is to improve lives in the communities we serve by providing state-of-the-art vascular care in a compassionate and affordable manner.



Continuously redefining the care of patients with venous disorders by providing comprehensive vein care throughout the United States in an environment of clinical excellence, integrity, mutual respect, and trust.


Founded by Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, MD, FACS, and having performed its first procedure in 2007, Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) has since become nationally recognized as a leader in the treatment of varicose and spider veins. In fact, venous insufficiency, the underlying cause of varicose veins and spider veins, is CVR’s sole focus. We are dedicated to relieving leg pain, treating the vascular cause of severe leg wounds, and eliminating uncomfortable or unsightly veins—allowing our patients to look better, feel better, and live better.

With 70 locations and growing, we have assembled the most qualified and experienced team of physicians, researchers, and staff to serve patients across Alabama, Connecticut, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, D.C.

We are unique among vein clinics for several reasons. First, we are proud that we employ some of the highest caliber vascular medicine specialists and medical staff in the profession. Second, we offer a complete array of clinical procedures for the treatment of vein disease, dealing with root causes and serious health issues, not just improving our patients’ appearances. Third, our staff researchers, while working to refine the work we do every day, are also looking to the future, researching new methods and technologies to improve the practice of vascular medicine. Finally, we are proud to say we are the largest organization of our kind, conducting more varicose vein and spider vein procedures than any other vein clinic. Why is this important? Our practice is built on experience, expertise and trust. Our patients can be assured that when they call us for a consultation they are dealing with the most knowledgeable professionals possible who can provide them the safest, most positive treatment outcome.
