JANUARY 2019, PHILADELPHIA:Center for Vein Restoration (CVR) is proud to announce our partnership with notable Philadelphia area vein specialist Mehul Shah, MD, FSVM. Dr. Shah’s practice in King of Prussia will be the third CVR location in Pennsylvania alongside Dr. Cornwell’s Horsham and Bensalem practices. Dr. Mehul Shah comes to CVR after 28 years in private practice as medical director of the Vascular Medicine Center. He is well-known for his pleasant and informative bedside manner and has performed thousands of venous ablations over the course of his career. His practice will reopen as a CVR location starting January 7.

“I chose to focus on chronic venous insufficiency because I understand the pain, health risks, and limiting lifestyle that result from these issues,” said Dr. Shah. “Seeing patients look as good as they feel and return to normal daily life with confidence is personally and professionally rewarding to me.”

Dr. Sanjiv Lakhanpal, CEO; Dr. Khanh Q. Nguyen, Corporate Medical Officer; Ken Abod, CFO; and Neil Collier, Chief Operating Officer, at CVR are all pleased to welcome Dr. Shah to the company. “Dr. Shah’s dedication to the successful treatment of his patients is emblematic of the commitment we all as a company strive for,” said Dr. Lakhanpal.

He completed his medical degree at Baroda Medical College in Baroda, India; an Internal Medicine residency at Harrisburg Hospital and Hershey Medical Center in Pennsylvania; and a fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic Hospital and Foundation. Dr. Shah is currently a fellow of the Society for Vascular Medicine.

Dr. Shah is passionate about treating patients with venous disease. Patients know him for his friendly, calm demeanor, which makes it easy for patients to feel comfortable under his care.

Dr. Shah’s accomplishments and accreditations also include:

  • Fellow, Society for Vascular Medicine
  • Fellowship Trained, Cleveland Clinic Hospital and Foundations


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 70 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.
