Center for Vein Restoration Celebrates National Nurses Week

Written By Center for Vein Restoration

MAY 01, 2019, Greenbelt, MD:Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) will be celebrating nurses during National Nurses Week, May 6 – 12. With 75 locations throughout the US, CVR will not only be celebrating nurses in the communities they serve, but also the many nurses employed by CVR. National Nurses Week is a time to recognize the vast contributions and positive impact of America’s 4 million registered nurses.

Many nurses, MAs, doctors and other medical professionals have achy, tired legs after long shifts on their feet – but leg pain and swelling may also be a sign of vein disease. Vein disease effects over 40 million Americans and is a progressive disorder that worsens without treatment. Women, those 55 and older, and individuals with standing professions have an increased risk of developing vein disease.

Dr. Theresa Soto, the Director of Clinical Affairs and lead physician in Fredericksburg, VA, is proud to kick-off CVR’s National Nurses Week celebration with an exclusive free vein screening event for nurses. “Being on their feet all day for work, nurses are at especially high risk of vein disease,” says Dr. Soto. “We are holding this event to serve those who serve so many – to ensure they stay on their feet and healthy.”

The VIPN (Very Important Nurses) Vein Screening Event will be held Tuesday, May 7 from 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm at the Center for Vein Restoration, 301 Park Hill Drive, STE C, in Fredericksburg, VA. Beverages and light hors d’oeuvres will be served. Nurses may RSVP by emailing Sarah Villa at [email protected].


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.


Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is the largest physician led practice treating venous disease in the country. Having performed its first procedure in 2007 under President and CEO Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, Center for Vein Restoration has since become a nationally recognized leader in the treatment of Chronic Venous Insufficiency. With 75 centers and growing, CVR has over 400 employees and conducts over 100,000 patient interactions each year. To learn more about CVR and its mission, visit or by phone at 240-965-3915.
