Written By Center for Vein Restoration

FEBRUARY 2020, MOBILE, AL: Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is proud to announce the grand opening of their 84th location in the nation. The new center is located in Mobile, Alabama. The practice will be a sister site to Dr. Rodney Sirk’s location in Fairhope, AL. This will be the fourth CVR center in the state of Alabama, alongside the Dothan, Opelika and Fairhope-based vein centers.

Rodney Sirk, MD, RVT, RPhS focused on general medicine (inpatient, ICU, and outpatient) in the first decade of his career. After completing additional training in Birmingham, Alabama, he transitioned to focus entirely on Phlebology in 2010. Dr. Sirk is a Diplomate of the American Board of Venous and Lymphatic Medicine, and a member of the American Vein and Lymphatic Society and the American Venous Forum. He also specializes in ultrasound imaging as a Registered Vascular Technician and a Registered Phlebology Sonographer. He operated the Fairhope Vein Treatment Center LLC, an independent vein practice, since 2014, which became part of the Center for Vein Restoration in September of 2019.

Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, CEO; Dr. Khanh Q. Nguyen, Chief Medical Officer; Ken Abod, CFO; and Neil Collier, Chief Operating Officer, are all excited to expand vein services to the west side of the Mobile Bay by opening this 84th CVR location. Of the expansion, Dr. Lakhanpal stated, “The mission of Center for Vein Restoration is to ‘to improve lives in the communities we serve by providing state-of-the-art vascular care in a compassionate and affordable manner.’ By opening centers in more communities, we help the patient achieve easier access to vein care that is safe and effective, and board-certified doctors that are tried and trusted.”

“The more patients’ lives we can touch,” said Lakhanpal, “The closer we are to achieving our mission.”


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 vein 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 nationally recognized as the clinical leader in treating chronic venous insufficiency. With 84 centers and growing, CVR has over 500 employees and conducts over 200,000 patient interactions annually. To learn more about CVR and its mission, visit or by phone at 240-965-3915.
