"For my entire career, I was in private practice. As health systems evolved, managing the business by myself became harder. I began looking for a huge partner like CVR that had national influence. Something more collegial and made up of physicians like myself who understand what I do daily. I knew several doctors who joined for the same reason, and that's what inspired me to meet with the great team at CVR." – Dr. Brent Greenberg, Center for Vein Restoration (formally Carolina Vein Specialists)

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. This common and underdiagnosed disorder affects between 30 to 40 million Americans. Risk factors include age, weight, prolonged sitting or standing, genetics, and DVT (blood clot) history. Treatment options have evolved to an array of minimally invasive procedures in an office setting.
